Cupcake Bird and I welcome you to my artist website. Each of my acrylic paintings tells a bit of a story. The viewer gets to figure out what happens next! I’m honored my work is displayed in children’s bedrooms and school classrooms and that kids rush to see my paintings at art shows. Of course, I’m pleased that adults like my art too.

I started painting just a few years ago. I’ve now sold over 170 paintings through galleries, art shows, and my online presence. My Toys Escaping” series was commissioned by the Orange Country Historical Museum in 2019 in conjunction with their antique toy exhibit. I had a wonderful time figuring out how each toy would escape. I have an upcoming show at Margaret Lane Gallery here in Hillsborough. It’s called “Story Lines,” and each artist is asked to submit paintings showing the beginning, middle, and ending of an original story.

For pricing or other information or to buy or commission a painting, please contact me at BKYounger@gmail.com.
