My name is Cierra Johnson and I am a mixed media artist & designer. I am a member of the Visual Arts Center Committee at Arts for Lawrence. I had my first solo show at the Storefront Theater of Indianapolis in 2021.

I was featured in Meet the Artist XXXII and LOCALIZED: Garfield Park Artists Celebrate Indy’s Bicentennial in 2020.  I am a CICF grant recipient for 2020 &2021. This is my first year as a Flava Fresh! Artist.

In my practice, I make images about identity & the ethereal nature of human experience with a vibrant and textured look. It examines how we define ourselves, how we relate to each other individually and how we interact with our community and environment. 

I advocate for whole humanity through visual representation. Whole humanity includes living creatively and exploring varying means of self-expression. It’s not just making art; it’s music, changing my style, switching my hair. Full personhood means having the right to define & express my culture across mediums.
