Kelly Johnson has a rich, talented artistic community who serve as inspiration and motivation.
Daughter, dancer, forager, author, educator.
Leda is a wonderful example of turning childhood passions into a successful adult life style. She began writing, foraging, traveling and dancing as a young girl. As young as 6 years old she would forage our lunch from the local park, having done on her own, the necessary homework to make this safe and possible. I often knew more about her from the poetry she wrote for me than our actual conversations. She took her dancing very seriously and carved out an amazing dance career centered in NYC. These passions remained consistent throughout her childhood and into adulthood. With a little assistance from Mom & Dad, she took charge of her future and made sure she got the education she needed to make her dreams come true. site
