Annemarie Johnson is a professional artist specializing in mural painting and decorative wall finishes. Over the past 12 years I have enjoyed meeting my clients and working with them to achieve their dreams by making their homes beautiful. I love the creative process and have found each project to be as individual and unique as the person I am working with.
My dream is to work with local artists creating opportunities to collaborate and share in the decorative experience. In recent years I have worked on commercial projects with a team of artistS from the area.
Born in Baden, Austria in 1969 to Slovenian parents, Annemarie came to Canada at a very early age, eventually settling in Nova Scotia. She began her career as a Professional Artist in 2000. Since then, she has studied at St. Francis Xavier University and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Annemarie also completed classes from the School of Italian Plasters in Dallas, TX. Living in Halifax with her husband and five children, she explores her clients’ dreams each day in her studio.
Dreams have Wings - God gives us dreams to fly. When I first began painting I realized that drawing was like standing on the ground, and painting, was like flying high in the sky! I didn’t want to fly close to the ground by painting small art pieces but rather wanted the challenge and the thrill of painting BIG! I Love to Dream BIG! Let’s Dream Big together!
