Award-winning wall artisan and fine artist, Johanna Annable, was born in Texas in a Czech community of self-made artisans and sculpture artists. Following in her grandfather’s artistic footsteps, Johanna embarked on a lifelong study of ancient and modern interior spaces, Trompe l’oeil fine art murals, decorative painting and classical architecture. Her Czech background has influenced her European style, along with time spent studying and working in Majorca, Spain on an ancient Roman archeological site. Akin to the cave art paintings of animals and hunters whose art shifts with different light and the animals appear to dance on the uneven cave rock surfaces, Johanna creates a new kind of art reminiscent of these ancient frescoes and all encompassing all interior living surfaces for constant visual stimulation. Multi-media use of pigments, ancient plaster techniques, gilding, color juxtaposition, tricks of light, she creates entire room canvases on the walls and ceilings for complete ambiance in the form of moving, dancing, sparkling individual interior spaces.

Additionally, Johanna holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Design and Minor in Anthropology.

Johanna also studied and lived in Chile, South America, where she became passionate about the rich and ornate classical architecture, facades, doors and wrought iron gates. Additionally Johanna has extensive experience in the various old world decorative art techniques including faux bois and inlay and has been published in the international magazine, "Artisphere".

Hi Johanna, The art is on the wall is by Sue Jostes, a decorative artist in San Luis Obispo. I think it is all paint / plaster. The rest is tile mosaic. Thanks.
