in England the first 20 years of her life and then moved to Arizona,
where she lived in Bisbee and Phoenix. One of her best known
murals is located on the southwest corner of 16th & Thomas Road in
In a newspaper interview, she described her paintings in Phoenix as
"heavy and gray, a reflection of the concrete, congestion and pollution
of the city." However, moving to the small mining community of
Bisbee in 1998, she felt "lifted off the ground. My fingers started to
fly, and my colors came back."
Johnson died in Bali on June 1, 2009 from alcohol poisoning, part of a public outbreak of poison in a local drink, Arak.
