Linda Johns has been a full-time artist, author and naturalist for over 45 years. She works and writes out of her rural home studio, “Wilde Wood” in James River, Antigonish County, NS.

‘Sky Will Breathe Me’ is Johns’ first solo show in three years and was produced over the course of two winters. It consists of paintings on canvas and paper, as well as a selection of sculpture in whalebone, wood and stone. About the challenging direction of this combination of words and images, she writes: “Rather than ride two horses simultaneously, I needed to drive a team in harmony.”
