Birthday 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, but of course, I’m pleased that adults like it too. I started painting just a few years ago. I’ve now sold over one hundred paintings through galleries, art shows, and my online presence. My Toys Escaping series was commissioned by the Orange Country Historical Society in 2019 in conjunction with their antique toy exhibit. I had a wonderful time figuring out how each toy would escape.

I’m the author of eight picture books. I’m learning all I can about the illustration process. I’m especially hoping to do board books and picture books for young children as I think that best suits my style.

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