Woodworking

Biography

Dick Johns started creating art from wood as a weekend hobby and respite from his business refinishing antiques and cabinetry in Omaha, Nebraska. After retiring to Gulf Breeze, the hobby became a passion. Friends and family were the recipients of his works and soon every surface in the Johns’ house was covered with his pieces. His wife Marsha said, “Enough! Start sharing.” He became a new artist at Quayside Art Gallery shortly after her declaration.

Dick encourages gallery goers to pick up his items and feel the wood. Each item is accompanied with the type(s) of wood from which each item was created.
