    This artist really captured the innocent look of a peruvian child. I have been looking at “him” for hours trying to imagine his life. I am very thankful for her talent and sensitivity.

Life is a palette, where colors and images blend to capture a moment in time.

ARTIST STATEMENT: I love this world I live in, the people I have met through life, and the nature I have witnessed. I embrace my life experiences and choose to express these experiences in oil. I love to journey to the lands less traveled, lonely mountains, and dense forests away from this hurry up world and into those open spaces that are so quickly disappearing. To see the disappearing tribes, lands, people; these I seek to paint. While on my painter’s journey, I can be playful with vibrant colors and harmonious patterns. I paint, using a Wet on Wet Technique, forests and mountains within our expansive landscapes. I also use a Wipe Out Technique to make people take shape and come alive. With my imagination and my pictures as my guide, I strive to paint the emotional and spiritual story of this world in which we live.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Virginia (Jenny) Young lives in Decatur, Alabama (26 years). A native of northern California (35 years), Jenny cultivated an interest and appreciation in the majestic national and state parks of the western US. She loved hiking in the Redwoods at Big Basin State Park, snowball fights at Crater Lake, camping at Yosemite, and wild life watching at Yellowstone. As an ordained minister, she was a Missionary to the country of Namibia (Africa) for several years. She has been on mission trips to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and the Amazon Jungle of Peru. From photo safaris in Etosha Game Park to floating down the Amazon River, these adventures outside of the US, deepened and expanded her world view and appreciation of the diversity of nature and people. All of these life experiences is where Jenny derives her inspiration. Jenny began exploring art and painting while she lived in Namibia. Today Jenny is mainly focused on landscape paintings in oil and has begun exploring portraits. Jenny is married (40 years) and has 8 children (7 adopted from various countries).
