Mark D. Johnson



Lynchburg, VA

Mark aspires to be a “painter of everything.” Whether in the studio or the great outdoors the creative process takes him on a journey of discovery full of unexpected twists and turns until he arrives at the destination of a finished piece. Mark is not one to shy away from painting challenging subject matter as can be seen in the complexity of his Lynchburg cityscapes. 

As a self-taught artist, Mark studied extensively and learned a great deal through workshops with nationally known artists like Ken DeWaard, Patrick Lee, and Lynchburg’s own Ron Boehmer. Mark has received many awards through the years at various juried shows in the Lynchburg area, where he lives with wife Laurel, their two boys, and three cats.
