Tyra Johnson was born in San Antonio, Texas. As a child in a military family she relocated many times. As a result of time spent in Germany and Colorado, she developed a love for nature and outdoor activities. From location to location, she found herself involved in visual, theater, and musical arts. A natural creative, she carried a curiosity and uncommon perspective with her into adulthood.
Tyra is a self taught multi-disciplinary artist. She began her artistic journey with mixed media painting and developed a passion for sculpture, interior design, and architecture. In 2020, as a result of the pandemic she chose to focus her efforts on sculpture and architecture. She is currently working to create installations that immerse viewers in spaces reminiscent of landscapes from her travels while contemplating widely accepted constructs of our existence.
