A little history
After a ten-year career in the defense and high-tech industries, Johnna left the engineering world to become a full-time artist and woodworker. Her work has received two Chesley Awards for Best Three-Dimensional Work from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists, numerous awards from local and regional shows. She was commissioned to make the Hugo Award bases in 2000 and 2001, and was commissioned to create the 2010 Tiptree Award trophy. Her work is held in private collections throughout the US.
Johnna was born in eastern Massachusetts and attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she received her BS in Computer Science and her MSECE in Electrical and Computer Engineering. She is a member of the American Association of Woodturners, the Southern Maine Woodturners, the Maine Woodworkers Association and the Computer Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Johnna and her husband live in Sebago, Maine.
