Her sculpting work has been on exhibit at the Newport Beach Temple Open House, the Museum of Church History and Art, and the Mesa Arizona Temple Visitors’ Center. The Healing Power of Jesus Christ exhibit was at the Visitors’ Center for nearly 6 months and continued as a public exhibition at other Visitors’ Centers in the United States for the next several years. Her work entitled, “And Should We Die,” which is a dramatic depiction of a pioneer handcart scene, was the centerpiece of the Museum of Church History and Art for over a year. The Museum recognized Angela’s outstanding work, and awarded her the prestigious Merit Award for her life-sized depiction of Jesus Christ titled, “Come Unto Me,” which is now part of the LDS Church Art Collection.

Johnson has sculpted numerous private commissions among which are "Barry and Bobby Bonds" for Arizona State University and “Rising From the Ashes,” a work created for the Rising Star Outreach, a non-profit foundation that works with the leprosy colonies of India. She is also the Director of the I Am the Light of the World Foundation, a non-profit that has been organized to create a sculpture garden depicting the teachings and miracles of Jesus Christ. The "Light of the World" sculpture garden consists of thirty-five statues of Johnson's creation.

Johnson and her husband Kenneth have four children and ten grandchildren.
