ABOUT OUR TUTORS

Anna Johnson

Creative Director / Lead Etching Tutor

Anna is an artist/printmaker originally from Edinburgh with Shetlandic roots. She studied under Elizabeth Blackadder and Sir William Gillies whilst studying Drawing and Painting at the Edinburgh College of Art before taking a career as an Art Therapist, mentored by Joyce Laing, working in various institutions in and around Edinburgh. It was at this time that Anna was involved in the setup of the The Scottish Association of Psychoanalytical Psychotherapists.

Anna’s work is influenced by her psyche, her interest in chance happenings and her Viking roots. She works predominantly using both photographic and acrylic resist etching, incorporating both digital and hand drawn elements.

Pandora Johnson
