Happy Birthday: Buffie Johnson
Buffie Johnson was an American Abstract Imagist who was born on February 20th.
She exhibited her work between the 1930's until her death in the 2000's. Her daughter maintains an awesome website documenting the artist's work and journey. Buffie was connected with such notable figures as Peggy Guggenheim, Picasso, Dr. Carl Jung, Louise Bourgeois, Elaine deKooning, Lee Krasner etc.....
I love her ever evolving style and self reflection.
