Dean Roland Johnson

Founding Artist

Dean Roland Johnson has been painting with passion since childhood. While his professional journey has taken many paths, the common thread has been all things Visual. He is particularly fascinated by flowers. They come in innumerable shapes, sizes and colors and present themselves as beautiful opportunities for visual expression. As Monet has said: "I must have flowers, always and always."


Dean spent his early years in the Midwest where he graduated from Cornell College, IA. After receiving an MFA from Pratt Institute (NYC) he taught art in college for several years. During that time he exhibited and received several museum purchase awards. That period was followed by developing and marketing commercial textiles and then later owning and managing an award winning country inn. He recently moved to Winston-Salem with his wife, Jean Marie, and now commits his undivided attention to painting.
