Description

Katherine B. Young

b. 1962

 

Katherine B. Young’s paintings and drawings are explorations of the spiritual in nature, specifically in the vast spaces of ocean and sky. Alluding to art historical icon paintings, Young begins each painting with an underlying layer of metal leafing which she intentionally reveals hints of to enhance the glow and sense of reflection. Complimentary to Young’s paintings, the imagery of her ocean drawings naturally evoke a calm and meditative atmosphere.

 

Young studied art in her youth before earning her M.D. at Duke University and completing her post-graduate studies at Stanford University. After 10 years of private practice in medicine, Young took a sabbatical from her surgical career to raise her daughter and resume her study of art. Young earned an M.F.A. with honors at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2011.

 

Young has exhibited both locally and nationally, including at Stanford University, Oil Painters of America National Exhibition, and the Napa Valley Museum. Young maintains a studio and lives in San Francisco with her husband and daughter.
