“Art is an opportunity to connect
with our unconscious & communicate
something lasting about our experience.”
Amelia Johannsen is a multidisciplinary artist who combines her Pacific Northwest roots with the eclectic influences of Barcelona, where she has lived since 2005. Her distinctive artworks bring together raw textures, organic shapes, and coastal colors to create contemporary art where the serenity of water melds with the ruggedness of the natural world. She has developed a diverse repertoire encompassing ceramic sculptures, trencadis mosaics and abstract paintings. Amelia’s artworks have been featured in exhibitions, galleries and international media.
Waves & Curves
I feel most at peace in the presence of water; be it the rhythmic flow of a river, the crashing of ocean waves, or the serene stillness of a quiet lake. There’s something incredibly soothing about natural bodies of water that feels like coming home.
My creative process flows intuitively, guided by a desire to play and explore. My art emerges from this spontaneity, ensuring that every creation carries a distinct essence of its own.
Celebration of Vitality and Flow
Through my artwork, I have the privilege of sharing my deeply-held ideals and core values with the world. Mindfulness, environmentalism, feminism, and compassion for all beings are at the heart of my creative expression.
On my dedicated ceramics blog, I offer insights into my craft and share my artistic vision. Additionally, I founded FrikiFish, an online magazine that serves as a platform to showcase stories about art and emerging talent in the vibrant city of Barcelona.
Together, these endeavors allow me to amplify my voice and contribute to a broader conversation about the power of art and its potential to inspire change and cultivate a more compassionate world.
