Trish Johnson comes from Capreol, a small railway town in Northern Ontario. She graduated from the University of Toronto where she studied Art History and English Literature and from the Ontario College of Art where she studied photography. Trish lives in Toronto with her husband and her cat. Her four children have all grown up. Trish has been hooking rugs since 1988. Her designs are mostly inspired by her own photographs. Many of her rugs tell a story about her family and the places they have called home. Her work is her visual diary. She was chosen as Rug Hooking Artist of the Year by the Hooked Rug Museum of North America in Hubbards Nova Scotia. Her work has been included in Paulette Hackman’s “Story Rugs and their Storytellers” and most recently in Tamara Pavich’s, “Designed by You”.
