Birthday Bird and I welcome you to my artist website. I paint for children and whimsical adults. Each of my paintings tells a bit of a story. The viewer gets to figure out what happens next!
I use acrylics because the colors are vibrant and the medium is forgiving. A new artist, I sometimes jump out of bed and begin to paint right away. Painting makes me happy. Those who see my work say it makes them happy too.
If you’d like more information about my art or you’d like to buy a painting, please contact me at BKYounger@gmail.com.
On Exhibit Now: Toys Escaping!I just finished a series of 16 paintings for the Orange County Historical Museum here in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

The paintings are for sale and all of the proceeds go to support children’s programming at the museum. The prices will be listed soon. Shipping is available for an additional $10.
