Brooke Johnson is a Dallas-based, professional abstract resin artist. She creates pieces using vibrant pearlescent mica pigments, ink, paints, and resin. Her precise eye for color and innovative techniques combined with her unique mica and resin formulas set her apart from other resin artists.
Brooke graduated with Honors at the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and worked many years in the graphic design field in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Virginia. After moving to Dallas in 1992, Brooke’s career took a turn into the corporate world, and after twelve years, she returned to her heart’s desire and passion – visual arts.
Brooke’s visual arts career began as a muralist, which gradually developed into a successful decorative finishing company. Through her years as a decorative finisher, she worked with incredibly talented designers throughout the Dallas area. These innovative collaborations unleashed Brooke’s passion into tackling the complexities of abstract resin art.
As her journey with resin art continues, she constantly pushes the boundaries of resin and its crystallization process, going from a liquid to a solid-state, and has developed a new line of three-dimensional artwork, Resin Impressions. Brooke manipulates and sculpts the resin before it solidifies and mounts the artwork on clear acrylic panels. She has developed a mounting system using hidden braces, and French cleats mounted to the back of the artwork, adding additional dimensionality. Her artwork unleashes organic movement, depth, and visual aesthetics that simply are not possible with traditional art supplies and mediums.
Brooke was awarded 2nd place for her artwork in a juried exhibition for Texas Visual Art Association. She is a member and frequently exhibits in gallery shows and juried competitions through associations such as the Plano Art Association, Texas Visual Arts Association (TVAA), Visual Arts League of Allen, and the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco. She has been an exhibiter in Frisco Fine Art Gallery and supported Dallas Decorators Showhouse benefitting Alzheimer’s, Dallas Children Charities, and the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County. Many Dallas locations, including IBB Design in Frisco, Kathy Adams Interiors in Plano, and The Green Tuffet in Allen have featured her art. It can also be found at The Botanical Mix in the Dallas Market Center and both Talulah & Hess and The Interiors in Dallas and Porter Lighting, Addison.
