Sarah "Johnsy" Johnsrude

Johnsy is a visual artist based in NYC, where she's adjusting to life in the concrete jungle after dancing with abandon along The Sound in Connecticut and falling in love in rural Ohio. Johnsy has a background in sociology, acting, theatrical design, and, most recently, mixed media assemblage. She is currently exploring autobiographical installations made out of personal mementos and found objects as a form of emotional healing and empowerment. Johnsy is so excited to meet her new 2017 GIA family and she looks forward to growing and laughing and learning and frolicking together this summer!
