Dan Johnson
Mixed Media

I live and work at my cabin in Rangeley, Maine.

Years ago I had a woodcraft business and I have always wanted to get back to this more creative lifestyle.   So after spending quite a few years in product development in the housewares industry I decided to move to rural Maine to pursue my passion for creating my own original artwork and the challenges of transferring my artwork on to functional products for the home.

I now work primarily in watercolor.  I try to create fresh, clean images inspired largely by nature and wildlife.  In addition to producing giclee reproductions of my paintings I have developed a line of functional products that use my original paintings.  My paintings are transferred on to wood via a printing process which results in a brilliant color reproduction on a highly durable surface.   My current products include Tabletop items such as Table Savers  (trivets), Centerpieces, Placemats and Coasters.  I am currently working on both topical and seasonal collections.  I am also currently experimenting with mixed media by combining painting and photography.
