Christi Johnson

This work developed out of a belief that the expression of creativity is the most magical act, and the resulting imagery is a representation of the inner visions accessed through practices of meditation and stillness.

These scenes are an attempt to capture the symbols dancing across closed eyelids during moments of immersion.


Trained as a fashion designer, I was raised in tropical Florida, spent a good deal of time bouncing around the edges of Los Angeles, and currently reside in the foothills of the Catskills in New York.

I work mostly with textiles - embroidery, natural dyes, and patchwork, but have been known to get down with some twigs, wood, and other natural materials.
