About the artist
Courtney Young is a New York based artist and art educator working primarily in Oil Paint and Soft Pastel. Her most recent body of work seeks to capture the light and mood of nature’s beauty. To capture the feeling of a location she often begins her work en plein air by creating color and light studies, then returns to the studio to turn these studies into larger finished works of art.
Courtney travels throughout the United States to gain inspiration from the beauty of our wonderful and biologically diverse country.
