Fine Art From Nightmares

Artist Statement

Welcome. My name is Shirley Johnson AKA Skiwlz. I am two sides of the same coin. Light and Dark. One does not exist without the other. All of my art is a reflection of the emotional and physical trauma I have experienced throughout my life. Even the depictions of calm nature scenes can emote feelings of suffocation or loneliness. I am driven by interwoven vibrant colors as well as simple black and white line drawings. I think of my art as surreal realism, and at times it can be unsettling. However, there is meaning behind every brushstroke, every hatched line.
