Born on the Caribbean Coast of Colombia to a family of artists, Maria Johnson, “MaJo”, could not help but inherit their talent. MaJo’s arts supportive environment provided by her family helped her cultivate her craft. The best recollections of her childhood are the beautiful landscapes at sunset that her father painted.

MaJo has painted and displayed her work from very early age. She has painted murals for schools, retail shops, offices, private residences. Her work can be found in a myriad of private homes and exhibits, including Naples, Washington DC, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Kansas City. Additionally her paintings hang in private collections abroad in England and Sweden.
