Mary Ellen Johnson — worx

I know you’ll probably hate me, but please forgive me! It was kinda hard for me too.
Let’s see who is behind these deliciously realistic paintings of ice cream sundaes, banana splits, gooey cheesecake and all sorts of other yummy paintings. Well her name is Mary Ellen Johnson and she is a painter from West Broadway, New York. Her main subject is food, as you may notice below, and this is how she describes her work;
My work stirs visceral and psychological impulses. It evokes nostalgia, and an intrinsic yearning for gratification. The food communicates a visual language that crosses the barriers of different cultures, for food is a universal experience.
