Joan Young Art

Hi! I’m Joan Young—welcome to my website!

I’ve always been interested in art. It started when my grandparents took me to an art festival when I was young. I saw the work people were creating, and thought “I can do that!” It wasn’t quite as simple as that, but I was hooked.

Today, I’m painting in oils and experimenting with pencils & pastels. My subjects have been mainly fruits & veggies, with a few landscapes thrown in. Of course there’s always the New Mexico fave—chiles! I really enjoy creating those images, as you’ll see here. I’ve always been fascinated by the artwork & illustrations on greeting cards as well. Such fun & color in a small format. So I’m working on greeting card designs now, and having fun!

So come on in, look around, and thanks for visiting! Be sure to drop me a line to say “Hi”!
