This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted March 2005, is from the artist.

Lois Johnson spent her childhood in the misty rolling hills of the Santa Cruz mountains. There she was surrounded by lush green farmland to the east and the majestic Pacific coast on the west. The eyes and mind of this child joyously absorbed the beauty and thus began the arduous journey of becoming an artist/painter.

As a young adult she moved to the Southwest where, for the next twenty-seven years, she lived, studied and worked as an artist. The newness of Northern Arizona with its native people inspired her to devote all her time and energy learning to know and paint the Hopi and Navajo people and their lovely children. Her work was recognized from the 1960s through the 1980s by collectors of southwest art. Lois is included in Contemporary Western Artists, Who's Who in the West and Who's Who in America.

Lois Johnson studied with many highly respected artists including; Donald Puttman, Wilson Hurley, Bettina Steinke, Charles Movalli, John Sanden, George Carlson, Richard Goetz and Gregg Kreutz of the Art Students League,N. Y., and above all Clair Fry and Ben Stahl,who were considered masters of the generation of Norman Rockwell, N.C Wyeth and Maxfield Parrish.

In 1987 the sea, rolling hills and verdant truck farms called her back to California to record her as yet unpainted childhood memories-not as she remembered them, but as if, through the eyes of her most esteemed mentors - Cezanne, Sisley, Monet and Bonnard. She traveled along the coast in her small RV in the late 1980s and 1990s painting "en plein aire".

In 1995, at a workshop with Charles Movalli, she "found" her soul mate, Ron Grauer, painting (inconspicuously but in a white heat of ferocious concentration) behind a barn apart from the rest of the class.  It was his masterful influence that solidified her approach to the California landscape.
