About the Artist

Amy Johnson (Seattle) received 2008 GAP Award funding for materials to be used during her artist in residence at Centrum in Port Townsend. Her work deals with the fairy-tale narrative’s impact on female identity formation. Her intent as an artist is to create empathy and to voice concern for what is repeatedly engrained in the minds of girls and of women. Amy’s medium is primarily paper. She creates three-dimensional wall installations as well as sculptures, which she combines into site-specific installations.
