Her melodic ultra shredding style has gained a lot of interest from guitar fans including Mike Varney:

“Johansson has a great feel and some incredible chops played within strong compositions. In addition to her excellent phrasing and strong vibrato, Johansson is an extremely impressive speed picker.”
