About me

Ulla Maria Johanson



Born in Jonkoping and now living in Stenungsund, Bohuslan. I paint intuitively and inspired by both the inner and outer landscape. Deliberately vague to invite the beholder's imagination to interpret and fill in. The fast drying time of the acrylic paints suits me well and I mostly use broad, straight brushes.

In the fall of 2014, I started my project with daily small paintings (15x15, 20x20cm) and have since then added a picture and a small text to my blog every day. Now it has become over 1200 posts and I also have an Instagram account @umj.art where I present today's paintings and a little poem in Swedish.
