Based in Vancouver, artist Krista Johnson creates abundant and vivid botanical paintings with nods to Impressionism and maximalism. Johnson, who has worked with Farmboy Fine Arts since 2015, studies light and color play in her studies, under-paintings, and finished paintings. From single flower studies with careful attention to form, to robust garden scenes, Johnson’s work is unique and personal.

Based in Big Sky Country, Macomb, Illinois, Farmboy artist Sharon Knight has been part of the team since 2015. Photographing the vast nature around her, Knight captures bucolic, pastoral scenes.

Currently, Knight is working on a series of watersheds—small creeks and rivers that connect the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers. Continually looks to her environment, Knight finds inspiration in the smallest stream and the biggest sky.

Mike Bernard’s portfolio is an adventure-seeker’s dream: coast to coast and forest to forest, Bernard is forever on the move, and impressing us with his photos the whole way. A Vancouver-based photographer, Bernard signed on with FBFA in 2005. His work highlights his masterful approach to organic photography and landscapes that capture the essence of his adventurous spirit. Art imitates life in his experimental abstractions, making it clear that nature really is his playground, both on camera and off.

The rich tones of his photographs and their nuanced focus on the approachability of the natural world illustrates Bernard’s approach to photography—and life—perfectly. An established photographer and cinematographer, Bernard’s perpetual motion is mirrored in the diversity and range of his portfolio—each image is timeless in its moment, much like nature itself.
