The Power of Art

The holidays give me time to catch up on my reading and the following article in The New Yorker about the illustrator Lonni Sue Johnson is something I would like to share.

From her site:

Prominent artist, Lonni Sue Johnson, was suddenly struck with profound amnesia (memory loss). Her recovery art gives a rare glimpse into the mind.

Lonni Sue was a professional illustrator for 31 years. Her art was published by The New York Times and appeared on covers of The New Yorker magazine. She also did illustrations for The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, the medical field, major corporations and the government.  She illustrated many books. Her art has been recognized by the White House and the United Nations and is in the Smithsonian collection.

Suddenly, just before the 2008 New Year, Lonni Sue’s pen nearly stopped. She had been struck with a severe case of encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain, and nearly died. She had to relearn how to walk, talk, and eat. Margaret Kennard Johnson, mother and fellow artist, has been helping Lonni Sue regain her art...

For the complete article go to The New Yorker site. It is a very inspiring read.
