Capturing the joy of childhood

The much-loved artwork of Tabea Johnson

Remembering Tabea 1948–2020

For many years Community Playthings' catalogues were instantly recognisable by the whimsical drawings of children that graced the front covers. Tabea Johnson – mother, grandmother, early childhood educator, high school counsellor, friend to all, and artist – will be missed by everyone whose lives were touched by her love and joy. This short slide show contains only a tiny portion of her vast collection of artwork. It serves to remind us of the free and wonder-filled childhood all children deserve.
