Getting it Together

Getting it Together

Hello World! lol My name is Gigi Johnston and I'm a ceramic, fiber, resin, and digital artist. Also a jack of all trades. I have an AAA in Studio Arts from NVCC '16. I'm a former ceramic work/study, studio assistant, production potter, youth and adult pottery teacher. I'm also self-taught in kitting, crocheting, weaving, sewing, macrame, embroidery, jewelry making, digital art, beading, resin and gardening. I'm also a homesteading enthusiast, corgi parent, adventurer and lover of all thinks creepy, cute and pink. 

I was going to begin trying to transition to making a full time living off of my own art in 2020, but I probably don't really need to go into what stalled all that. In February 2021 my husband and I packed up our 2 dogs and everything we owned and left Washington, DC for Portland, OR. In Summer of 2021 I rented out my own studio space and started working on figuring out my own style. In Summer of 2022 I was able to put together my own garage studio. Since everything has opened up again I've done a few small markets and am working my way into bigger ones. 

This summer I have 4 markets I plan to attend:
