Jade Johnson is an artist and illustrator whose practice ranges from colourful illustrations of her cats to exploring her mixed British and Indigenous Taiwanese identity. Having created a colouring book exploring different indigenous tribe's relationship with colour, for the ‘Medical Association of Indigenous Peoples of Taiwan', Jade has been interested in the role art plays in healing. She hopes to continue incorporating healing into her practice; through promoting the rediscovery of forgotten indigenous handcrafts and inviting young indigenous peoples to learn these skills from their elders. Jade believes this will help promote ethnic identity of youth, alleviate loneliness of the elderly, and strengthen the bonds between generations. Ultimately Jade's aim is to apply her art to social causes she cares about, in whatever form that might be.
