The vision that Amy shares in her work not only speaks to me on a cellular level, but also tugs my heart in such a way that I feel everything she’s saying with every brushstroke. It’s been an honor working alongside her on projects for clients AND projects for me. Art is life!
The passion that spills from Amy onto every canvas is something that is truly beautiful. It's as if each piece is alive — with feelings and emotions, captivating you with every brush stroke.
After meeting Amy, I saw her spirit splashed across, poured out and breathed into every piece. I now own two larger works, and each one speaks to me in different ways every time I pass by. I can’t wait to see how she expresses herself in new ways.
Born and raised in the South, Amy Young grew up with a paint brush in her hand. Her family was creative and as a child she was given the freedom to be messy while creating. She was told not to color between the lines, to paint beyond the borders, and that cloulds could be any color! Her family recognized her gift, and gave Amy the opportunity to develop her natural ability through professionally-taught workshops where she gained competance in a variety of artistic mediums. After graduating from the University of Alabama, she was fortunate to get the chance to study under several nationally recognized artists. As a painter, at the beginning of each piece, Amy's ultimate goals are authenticity and childlike freedom to experiment. Amy's studio is a place of exploration where she wildly applies paint using proprietary methods. The materials she uses include oil, ink, gouache, watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, pastels, oil sticks, handmade paper, textiles, oil pastels, dry paint pigments, industrial paint, cold wax, encaustic wax, and old concert posters collected from her travels. Her pieces can be found in private collections and public spaces across the country. In April 2021, she opened Amy Young Art Gallery in Fort Worth, Texas.
