Our Artists: Caneel Johnson

July 19, 2012

Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Caneel Johnson and I am 31-years-old. I am learning to make jewelry as a hobby.

Apart from creating things, what do you do? 

I work at Colville Travel. I love to read, eat and be outside.

Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from whichever stone I am working on to make a new piece of jewelry. I also get inspiration from all the artists in my life that have moved me with their work.

Who has been most influential in your craft?
