About Odette Johnson
Odette Johnson was born and raised in rural Quebec. She moved to Toronto after secondary school and entered the Ontario College of Art to study communication and design. Afterwards she received instructions in the art of graphics and illustration at George Brown College.
While raising a young family, Odette’s training had given her a solid foundation to create and collaborate with her father Bruce Johnson in publishing three highly acclaimed children’s books. As her children grew, she found herself pursuing a career in the animation and advertising industries.
Odette’s passion for painting is inspired by the beauty and joy that nature has to offer. She now resides in Ontario where she continues to paint in her Toronto studio.
