Welcome to my artist website! I create whimsical acrylic paintings and collages in my home studio in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

I started painting a few years ago. I’ve now sold over 300 paintings through galleries, art shows, art festivals, and my online presence. Coming April, 2022, I’m featured with two other creatives in a show we’re presenting at Margaret Lane Gallery. It’s called “Flashes of Hillsborough.” Please come if you’re in the area.

To buy or commission a painting, please contact me at BKYounger@gmail.com. I ship! Some of the paintings below are currently displayed at Margaret Lane Gallery in Hillsborough or the Turtle Central Gift Shop on Bald Head Island. Both of these wonderful places will ship a painting to you too.
