Johnson-Allen is a Philadelphia-based artist who earned a B.A. in Elementary Education from Pennsylvania State University, and an M.F.A. in Art Education with an emphasis on Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Her art dwells on the spiritual and ritual aspects of art, expressing unconscious messages and the artist’s connection with her inner self, her ancestral past, and contemporary culture. She writes, “My art making creates harmony, balance and comfort. It is a ritual that reveres, honors and communicates with my ancestors thus creating an acute awareness of my connection to nature and sense of purpose.” Another Realm explores the artist’s relationship with her ancestry through the inclusion of African masks as well as female figures intertwined with beads that symbolically express the spirituality of contemporary African women.
