Meet Jamie Young

Jamie Young is a self taught painter. She became a member at Studio 23 almost a year ago. She signed up for Intro/Intermediate Acrylic class. She wanted professional guidance and to learn proper techniques.

One day she was observing her Instructor Garrett Weslock glazing a ceramic sculpture and she thought I want to do that too. So she signed up for Introduction to Ceramic Sculpture. Jamie is an avid collector of Snowmen and is currently working on a melting snowman in clay class. She really enjoys Intro. to Ceramic Sculpture because it gives you the freedom to “Express Yourself”.

Art is her outlet and the best therapy! She is a welcoming presence every day when she walks through Studio 23’s doors, and regularly attends the Artist Guild that started last year.  One of her favorite things about Studio 23 is the students here are always friendly and helpful. Jamie’s future project is to create a large organic sculpture.

Look for her work in the upcoming Painters and Potters exhibition!
