Inhaling the fumes of the oil & gas industry, Bartz Johnson drew his first breath in Pasadena, TX . Raised and more in Houston, he still couldn't find himself comfortable serving the industry and thus has held jobs from mechanic to driver to technical writer. But it might have been the retail jobs that informed his sense of esthetic most. A degree in Electronic Engineering Technology meant he could sell hardware and software to scientists, engineers, and government buyers over the phone. When his love gifted him with a point and shoot digital camera, something different in the psyche emerged. Since then, and much equipment later, he draws on natural and man-made forms to create a message of perspective, color, and maybe a touch of fear. He was self-educated by drawing on experience in the working world, guidance by community, and the exhausting reviewing and editing process.Inline image 1 The grandiose needs mocking, the past needs examining, and nature needs respect.

He also likes to believe he's creative in the kitchen.
