Young is a professional fiber/mixed media artist, internationally
recognized throughout the United States, in Europe and in Japan.
Her work is seen as ancient but also contemporary fitting in many
different environmental settings.
wall pieces are made with thickly cast 85% abaca handmade paper.
Integrated into the compositions are other materials and found objects.
Crackled joint compound is used to "age" the surface,
which is further enhanced with copper or gold leaf, old cedar shingles,
sheet copper, acrylic paint and now encaustic painting with beeswax
and pigment. The pieces are lightweight, durable and are mostly
hung without a frame.
