Meet Amy Young of Amy Young Art in Fort Worth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amy Young.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Amy. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’m from the deep south and grew up in a family of artistic people. Art supplies were put into my hands from the get-go! When I was a child, many people would teach art classes out of their garages. My mother would sign me up for every single one she could find. One month I might be on a pottery wheel and the next painting oil paintings of beautiful historical buildings. When I went to the University of Alabama, I fell in love with the art department and took as many art classes as possible. The very first piece of art I sold was out of the Kappa house.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In the beginning, I did all kinds of art because I was afraid to do what I really wanted to do. My dream was to create extra large abstract oil paintings. One day I broke through that fear by taking tons of supplies up on a golf course. I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t stop until a piece was completed. I never looked back after that!!

Please tell us more about your art. What sets you apart from others?
I think what sets me apart is that I do so many different types of paintings that are all uniquely me. Some pieces are soft and calming and others are super colorful and full of energy. Because of this wide variety often times clients, designers and store owners are able to place multiple pieces in one location. I use an extreme mix of materials but oil on canvas is my number one go to. I am currently developing a new method and I have only released one piece to be sold. I’m looking forward to developing this idea further! I also absolutely love meeting the clients and visiting their homes. I have worked with the most unbelievably kind people. Knowing that my art is loved and enjoyed by them is such a blessing to me!

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I would say my work ethic + my faith! Some days I will work for 16 hours straight and enjoy every minute. I want to glorify the Lord and paint what He gives me to paint. I am constantly exploring new methods and ideas He gives me. If I paint a commissioned piece, I always begin the process with prayer and then pray for the family as I paint the piece.
