About the Artist

Roger Hayden Johnson has been painting since the age of ten, when he begged his parents to buy him a set of oil paints after watching the movie "Lust for Life," in which Kirk Douglas played the role of Vincent Van Gogh. He taught himself to paint the landscapes near the small Iowa farm where he grew up. He later studied art at Central College in Pella, Iowa, and earned a master's degree in art and art history at the University of Northern Iowa and a Master of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
