This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for large-scale modernist style public murals, Rose Johnson lived 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 Phoenix. 

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 alcohal poisoning, part of a public outbreak of poison in a local drink, arak.

Richard Nilsen, "Rose Johnson, 48, Valley Muralist", Arizona Republic, 6/2/2009
