Johannah Birney is a self-taught painter and performance artist on a quest to understand and expound the esoteric secrets held within circles. Through inquiry, experimentation, and dedication to reputation, she researches the simplicity of divinity.
Johannah’s inspiration draws from a childhood shaped by a degenerative eye disease that brought her under the surgeon’s precise knife, which restored her sight. Gifted with a second chance to see the world, her driving motivation is a desire to provide an experience in which the audience can look at a piece of art that is looking back at us with amazed grace.
Through her paintings, ritual design, and performance, Johannah creates experiential portals into a more beautiful world, and invites us to be co-creators in making Heaven on Earth manifest in our daily lives.
