About Emily Young
There are no upcoming events
I am an artist, high school art teacher, mother and a wife. I am inspired by the beauty of nature and the beautiful differences in people. I love to travel and my artwork reflects the different landscapes and feelings I get while on my journeys. I view the greatest of artistic achievements I've seen, such as in Italy, as comparable to the simple natural wonders that I can find here in Kansas. Each one is unique in its own right and it's my job to reflect the emotion and beauty of all. I create a mix of art from finely detailed to complete abstraction. I work in many medias because I feel the subject tells me what it wants for me to use to convey its meaning. It saddens me when an artist only sticks to one media and one subject. As artists we are creative creatures and learning, growing, and changing should be part of our process. I enjoy learning new techniques and working in new media because it enhances my understanding and learning of art. It is not always easy but it makes me so much better in the end. Truthfully I enjoy the challenge and the feeling I get what I accomplish those things.
