“My time at the studio has been fantastic, rewarding and therapeutic.”
Chris Johnson uses the creation of stained glass art as therapy in his recovery from schizophrenia. An intermittent artist prior to his illness, Chris began sketching mazes as recreation. Later, he switched from pencil crayon designs to the stained glass medium in an effort to expand his artistic diversity. After a few years of developing his artistic abilities, he participated in the Artbeat Studio residency.
