Carol C. Young is a landscape painter working in acrylics and oils. She is a plein air painter as well as a studio artist whose contemporary work is primarily identified by a bold use of light and shadow along with iconic depictions of structures within the rural landscape. A fine arts major at the College of New Rochelle, NY, her paintings have won several awards including best in show at the Pequot Library Art show in Connecticut, first place in the acrylic division at the Rowayton Arts Center in Connecticut, and second place for acrylics/oils at the Mary O. Fritchie Art Show in Westhampton Beach, New York.

“My technique is spontaneous. I want to capture the moment in my painting, intrigued by the patterns created by sunlight, shadows and shapes at that time of day. When I paint structures, I am inspired by those that hold history. Ones that have been part of the landscape for a long time - ones that may be gone soon. America's rural landscape influences the majority of my work - structures that have a weathered history are intriguing, lonely and a nostalgic expression that inspires me. Shapes, light, shadows, and the magnificence of color are what move me to paint. I want to capture the beauty of history in an old farmhouse or barn, before the ever changing landscape changes again forever.”

Carol resides in Connecticut with her husband David, daughter Isabella, and two Long-Haired Whippets, Cobalt & Hopper.
