Emily Johns

Emily Johns studied geography at Durham, then fine art
at Goldsmiths because pictures were the right medium in
which to think about geography.

Her work spans poetry and politics.  For over 30 years
she’s collaborated with poets to produce books published
by Hearing Eye and her artwork has been widely used
for campaigning.

Her current project, ‘The World is My Country’
– is a poster series celebrating the anti-war movements
of WW1.  Venues displaying her artwork include the Royal
Geographical Society; Dayton Peace Museum; Senate House;
the Women’s Museum, Bonn.

Emily’s lino etchings illustrate the book Printmaking:
Traditional and Contemporary Techniques by Ann d’Arcy
Hughes & Hebe Vernon-Morris.
