These are the things that I know about Beka ‘Squirt’ Johnson: Born in Dallas, cheerleader in college for Hawaii (yeah, I know), truth teller, tough enough that a broken rib doesn’t stop her, balloon lover, model for Whiskey Vintage, buff enough to not mess with her, hug giver, and a great friend to anyone that knows her.
She recently invited my husband, Paul and I to an art show she was in, at the Wit Gallery. I’ve gotten to know her over the past couple years and she’s one of my favorite artists to support. I started off going to her art shows while she was in school at UTA and admired her work hanging in our friends house at “Lexington Place”. I always had my eye on this piece of hers called Chucks and never thought she would sell it. But, when my husband and I showed up at Wit and saw it hanging on the wall, I knew instantly that it was mine. She then told me that it was her first piece she had ever done. I feel so special to be the owner of Chucks.
I was so excited to interview her to get to know her a little more.
