Legacy of My Heart
A Journey of Faith and Art
by Judy Johnson | Artist and Author
Legacy of My Heart contains fifty-two paintings that span fifteen years. Initially, Judy was led to write the story of a few paintings for her children and grandchildren, but as she painted and wrote, a book evolved! Judy has come to understand that, for her, every painting has a story that needs to be told. Woven throughout this book is the gospel story of God’s passionate love and extraordinary grace along with Judy’s discovery of that grace. Discover the joys and sorrows of Judy’s art journey, along with nuggets of truth interspersed with some painting techniques. Each story is completed with relevant Scripture verses to ponder and pray.

Judy Johnson is an ordinary woman who has been apprehended by an extraordinary God. She has been married to her husband, Allen, for over fifty years and is mother to three precious daughters and Grandma Judy to two fun grandsons. She’s a Midwest girl by birth, but for the last thirty-four years has made her home in southern New Hampshire. Judy studied art with nationally recognized artists but considers herself mostly self-taught. She loves studio time, experimenting and playing with new ideas. The simple things delight her heart-candles, outdoor concerts, celebrations, pottery, balloons, ice cream cones, painting outdoors, walking in the woods, watching the tide, and gentle snowfalls.
There are four words that define my teaching – philosophy, play, create, explore and discover and above all enjoy the process.
