Amy Young (b.1991) is a multidisciplinary artist whose methods and focus in art is as diverse as her neurobiology. Young’s work primarily explores mental health awareness by means of metaphor and symbolism. Through an attention to detail, color, visual balance, and blended imagery, the work embodies the idea of personal mythology. Young is inspired by the ideas of mythos and fairy tales as they relate to the nature of being human. While ceramics and painting are the most utilized mediums in Young’s work, she also works with fiber, found objects, metals, and pyrography, often in conjunction, to create pieces that speak to the magical nature of the moments found between the strength and struggle of existing.
