Bernadine Johnson

About

Bernadine Johnson was born Utopia in 1966, and now lives with her husband, artist Stephen Pitjara and children.

Her paintings tell of ceremonial stories, of gathering bush tucker, of traditions, and culturally significant locations. Her family’s responsibility to the bush yam has been passed down to her and she often depicts the bush yam and bush medicine in her works. The tiny attention to detail in her work is amazing by giving the impression that it is woven. It can be hung either way as it is an aerial view. Beautiful colour shades make this a painting that will fit into many places in your life over time.
