Award-winning Los Angeles portrait artist Johanna Spinks knows faces inside out.
For years she worked as a top Hollywood makeup artist to the stars applying her artistry
to many famous faces before they went under the lights.
Increasingly frustrated by the demands of the business,
Spinks decided to devote herself full-time to her love of classical portraiture - still painting the face, but from now on exclusively in oil on canvas!
Today she steadfastly observes the grand tradition of oil portraiture taking her cues from the Old Masters, adding a contemporary romantic twist. Her work, which
also includes still life and landscape, has won her
international acclaim being featured in The New York
Times, American Artist Magazine and Art Talk.
The Museum of Ventura County in CA just accepted 58 of Spinks' portraits into its permanent collection from her "Face of Ventura" art project.
