About Laura

Hello! I am Laura Johnson and I live in beautiful Austin, Texas.  After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art, I went on to the University of Louisville where I graduated with a Masters degree in Expressive Therapies. While there I learned from true pioneers in the art therapy field. I love painting, art, travel and gardening.

My professional credentials include being a Licensed Professional Counselor with the Texas State Board of Professional Counselors and a Board Certified Art Therapist with the American Art Therapy Credentials Board. I am a working artist and art therapist in South Austin and the past President of the South Texas Art Therapy Association. I also have extensive professional experience in family law, adoption and child welfare arenas. You can see my work at my Studio by appointment or on the WEST and EAST Austin Studio tours.
