About Yvonne Young
Lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA

I have been painting with watercolors and creating wood and linoleum block relief prints for 25 years. More recently I have created Intaglio, Collographs, and Monoprints. I’m a lover of nature and creatures. All my work begins with my connection to the natural world.
As a printmaker, I enjoy all printmaking techniques for different reasons. The process of printmaking is laborious but a labor of love. I savor every magical step and technique that culminates in the finished artwork. In our present culture, where mass production and sameness are the norm I thrive on creating a unique original product by hand.
