Artist of the Month: Karen Young

September 2023

Young's art work is inspired by hermother's love of painting. In high school, Young was the art editor of the school newspaper. When it came time for choosing a college, she had to decide between her love of art or her love of chemistry. Becoming a pharmacist was the more practical choice. While bringing up two sons and pursuing a career in pharmacy, art was pushed to the back of herpriorities. When she inherited her mom's acrylics it rekindled her joy of mixing colors and acrylic painting. While in Florida, Young took art classes at Talin's Tropical studio in Delray Beach, and since moving to Centerville 3 years ago, she has taken classes at Cape Cod Art Center.

Karen Young's artwork will be displayed in the front lobby for the month of September.
