Johanna Steffen received her academic and fine art training at the University of King's College, Halifax, where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Classics and German, and at NSCAD University, where she earned her Bachelor of Design in Communication Design and her Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her oil paintings display a distinctive sensitivity for the medium. Understated, sometimes almost monochromatic, her deft and subtle brushstrokes depict landscape and figures in landscape in a manner that is both definite and diffused. Subjects and narrative are familiar yet universal, and her restrained sense of colour imparts a sense of restful, atmospheric quietness.
