AnnMarie Young is a 21-year-old artist from Austin, Texas. She is currently enrolled in her third year at the University of Texas in Austin where she is studying Studio Art. She will be graduating in May, 2021.
AnnMarie’s subject matter and technical skills are constantly progressing. In her first year of painting classes she quickly found herself drawn to landscape work. After becoming trained with oil paints, many of her first landscape paintings reimagined West Texas and Arizona scenes in a style that reflected Neo-impressionist and Fauvist movements. Most recently AnnMarie’s work is connected to her travels and experiences made within them. Her love for the American West guides her travels and her work.
AnnMarie’s most recent series of work focuses on Texas State Parks. A primary goal of the work is to help people realize the beauty of the landscape around them without the need to travel to exotic countries halfway around the world. Ideally these paintings encourage a deeper appreciation of Texas landscape, a push for conservation, and provide an invitation to reflect upon your own memories in these places.
The Texas State Parks featured include Enchanted Rock State Park, Pedernales Falls State Park, and Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
