Saga Hill was founded by Wendy J. Johnson – a woman who juggles many professional roles, including: textile artist, photographer, award-winning site installation artist, author, graphic arts director & legibility consultant, media producer, and teacher in the textile arts. Wendy's studio resides in a historic Lake Minnetonka area called Saga Hill, in which many stories have been told under many moons. Believing that "place" defines us, Wendy has found that Saga Hill is the perfect location for nurturing creative energy and dreams.

Wendy's Swedish heritage, with a gene pool steeped in art and creative innovation, is a great influence within her life's work and something she likes to share with others. This has been reflected in her successful efforts to bring Elsabeth Lavold, Inger Fredholm, and the Bohus Stickning exhibit to an American audience; by writing about and promoting Swedish fiber art traditions within her patterns and books; and through teaching Swedish knitting technique, such as tvåändstickning.

Wendy is also "The Legibility Doctor" and founder of Elder Eye™ Design a legibility design business, and the President of Points Of View Productions Inc. the parent company of Saga Hill Designs. But Saga Hill has become the place that truly fuels her creative energy.

On the side, Wendy dances with her 2 border collies—who like to think they are working sheep dogs even though they no longer work with sheep.


(Can you see the ears of one of her dogs in this photo? Look to the back by the tree line and above the black sheep's head. That's "Z". An intense herder and as fast as Zorro in the field!)
