A Cup of Conversation with Brooke Johnson

Meet the artist and learn more about her show at the AGN!

Brooke Johnson is a self-taught visual artist, this exhibit is, for the most part, a collection of sculptural stories, inspired by, and incorporating found objects, both natural and man-made.

Brooke’s principal vocation is acting. A veteran of stage, screen, and radio, she graduated from the National Theatre School of Canada in 1987. She has played in large and small venues across the country, has premiered many original Canadian plays, and has performed select roles in the classics. She has been nominated four times for the Dora Mavor Moore Award for outstanding lead performances in Toronto. In 2007 Brooke wrote a solo autobiographical play, Trudeau Stories, which she since has performed from coast to coast. She has two Canadian Screen Awards for roles in Television: the title role in Dangerous Offender: The Marlene Moore Story, and Angie in the CBC mini-series, Conspiracy of Silence. Brooke was also awarded Best Actress for the film, Finn’s Girl, at the Festival del Mar in Majorca; and with the other actors in Atom Egoyan’s feature film, The Sweet Hereafter, Brooke received America’s National Board of Review Award for Best Ensemble (1998).

During the summer months Brooke lives aboard a Grand Banks Trawler, voyaging somewhere on the waterways of Ontario (keeping an eye open for sticks and stones), with her partner, Adrian, and two ship’s cats.
