Rodney J. Johnson
Since 1991, Rodney J. Johnson has been making his living as an illustrator, and owns his own publishing and distribution business. He started marketing with four limited editions and a full color brochure with order form. The images were wildlife and old houses. That series sold out, and now he carries new editions which can be viewed and purchased on his website.
During his junior year at Ramona High School, he took first place in 29 counties for all the high schools in Southern California, which was sponsored by the Press Enterprise newspaper in Riverside, California. The painting, titled "Interior" (medium: watercolor) went to the museum in Palm Springs.
He has studied at Riverside Community College, Southern Oregon University, Arizona State University, and Lane Community College.
He was previously on book contract with Alexander Art Corporation. The edition was 10,000 copies, to be distributed throughout the United States and Canada. This book was on a newly patented process which was given a utility patent from Washington, D.C.
His donations have raised money for Audubon Society, Bass Clubs, Rogue Fly Fishers Association, Girl Scouts, Rock Mountain Elks Foundation, Bass Masters, Bomber Lures, hundreds of churches and rescue missions, law enforcement agencies, domestic violence, Girls Club and Boys Club, juvenile detention centers, prisons, high schools, and various other organizations.
He will accept commissions on wildlife art, marine art, underwater sport fishing scenes, big game, old houses (Victorian, etc.), fantasy, visionary art, and some portraits.
