Jenny grew up and lives in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. She discovered her natural gift for composition and color following a difficult time in her life.
“A painting creates an emotion just like a story does. As long as you’re emotionally involved somehow, you’re going to keep on reading, you’re going to keep looking, keep being drawn into the story, into the painting.”
Jenny’s work has received awards in regional and national juried shows and has been included in publications such as International Artist, Southwest Art, and Artist Magazine.

"Angel Turn Toward the Sun" Photo by Mary Young.

Model Colby Files. BIO: I am Mary Young, an artist, a photographer and a passionate observer of life. At an early age I discovered my love of capturing a moment in time through my photography. Most recently I have learned to take my photos and use them to create something that a viewer might find thought provoking. My desire is to begin a story that you, the viewer, can finish. I found my artistic voice when I joined the “AWAKE, Living the Photo Artistic Life” course by Sebastian Michaels. There I not only found the how-to’s but the community of other artists that have encouraged my journey into a life of making art.
You can find more of my art at www.ArtBoja.com and key in Mary Young in the search field.
