Melita Johnston  

Melita Johnston is a colourist abstract expressionist artist. She paints in the highest quality acrylics on archival quality Museum stretched canvas. Bright, unique paintings they are one of a kind works. Multiply layers are painted by brush and palate knife to give strength of colour.

Melita looks at light, time, and the natural world. The way we initiate memories and desire from colour and images. Time - its season, weather and power on personal history and stories.

Melita Johnston was born in 1965. Her home town is the lovely rural town of Geraldine. She attended the local High School and then Otago University, Dunedin, achieving a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. She has been painting actively since the mid 1990‘s.

Melita has a facebook page where she posts her latest news, art and stories.

'I love colour and paint. I work hard to paint unique and honest paintings.'
