"Blooming Nantucket Blue Hydrangea" by Elena Johnson

Blue Hydrangea

Artist: Elena Johnson

Medium: Watercolor and pen

Chattanooga artist Elena Johnson says she knew from a young age she was born to make art.

"It wasn't a question of if I would follow my passion to create as an adult, only what I would make," she says. "I spend a lot of time in the outdoors, and my love of nature led me to focus on plants, flowers and birds in drawings. The original works are done in watercolor paint and finished with pen outline and shading. My favorite part is capturing as much detail as possible and bringing my subject matter to life."
