Featured Artist: Tassy Johnson – 1.3.2011

Photographer Tassy Johnson takes beautiful pictures. We stumbled across her Etsy shop and have fallen in love with her enchanting photos. A mixture between vivid and vintage coloring Tassy manages set a mood with lighting and layout. Even the simplest images of nature become transformed through her lens and leave you wanting to visit the very spot she caught still. We got the chance to ask Tassy a few questions and we’re very happy to be featuring her work on the Handmade City site. Let us know what you think of her photos and make sure to visit her online shops.

Tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Tassy Johnson. I adore my three children and have always loved art of every form. I grew up in a small town and was an only child until age 14, when my sister Jenna was adopted, which I believe fed my imagination.

Apart from being creative, what do you do?

I am a photographer part time, and most of my time is spent taking care of my children and spending time with my husband and loved ones. I am very grateful for this life.


Could you tell us about some of your work & your creative process?

Sometimes I plan out my shots, and other times I will be somewhere and something pulls at me to take a photograph. I also really enjoy the processing and love to have each photo have it’s own emotion.

Where do you find inspiration?

I find inspiration in new and unusual places as well as in very familiar places.

What handmade possession do you most cherish?

As far as handmade possessions that I cherish: I cherish the jewelry box my sister made for me… and all of the many drawings my children make for me… and the photographs from my childhood. I can’t just pick one thing!

In ten years, where would you like to be?

I would love to continue developing my art… maybe do some traveling… and also to learn how to play the guitar. :)
