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 and often buy it just for themselves or as a present for a friend or relative.

I started painting a few years ago. I’ve now sold over 200 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!

For pricing and 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.

Commissioned Paintings

I love to do commissions! Stephanie asked for a painting of her family, each disguised as their favorite animal.

Camille’s grandma wanted to surprise her with a sailboat under the moon.
