Johanna Winters is an artist and educator whose work engages printmaking, puppetry, video, performance, and sculpture to dispatch anxieties about aging in a female body. Currently this work considers the condition of a puppet protagonist who performs her sensuality for the camera. Johanna holds an MFA from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, and a BA from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. She has been awarded residencies at the Corporation of Yaddo, Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency, Lawrence Arts Center, ACRE, and the Vermont Studio Center, among others. She has exhibited and performed her work nationally–recently at the H&R Block Artspace (Kansas City, MO), Drama Club (Chicago, IL), Coop Gallery (Nashville, TN), and Soo Visual Arts Center (Minneapolis, MN).

Johanna is a recipient of the Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Artist Award and is serving as the 2022-23 Grant Wood Fellow in Printmaking at the University of Iowa. Prior to her artistic pursuits, Johanna trained as a professional cross-country skier and competed on an Olympic-development ski team based in the upper Midwest.
