Welcome to Aaron Johnson's
Paintings and Woodcuts

Gestures of California trees and our human interactions with nature lead to the visual ideas and explorations you'll find here.

My paintings are in two categories: Trees presents a series of tree portraits and Stories explores our human connections with nature. For examples of my work as a printer please visit the Woodcuts page.

I use the traditional medium of oil on linen canvas for my paintings and bring over twenty years of letterpress printing experience to the production of my woodcut prints. Both techniques require patience, but encourage a slower, more contemplative way of looking than is common in our contemporary world.

Biographical information and my résumé may be found by clicking on About the Artist. Information about contacting me or purchasing work may be found on the Contact page.


Dates for the Ella's at the Airport exhibit have changed to February 6th through April 8th.

Each October I participate in the Open Studios Art Tour sponsored by the Arts Council of Santa Cruz County, but you are welcome to call or email anytime to arrange a visit to my studio and see recent work.
