MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 312 FRONT STREET IN LAHAINA PRESENTS PAINTER, JEANNE YOUNG. COME MEET JEANNE AND WATCH HER PROCESS AND TECHNIQUES EVERY WEDNESDAY IN JANUARY FROM 4:30 – 7:30PM.
I was born in Portland, Oregon, spent most of my adult life and some of my childhood in rural Alaska. In the area I was raised, there weren’t schools for the kind of art I wanted to make so I developed an education strategy for myself and eventually travelled to study under artists who had mastered the skills I wanted to have.
I’ve been showing professionally since 2004. I’ve won national awards for painting, have been commissioned to do life-size bronze sculptures, taught many workshops and classes. I came to Maui for vacation and was invited to join a gallery in Lahaina. I fell in love with the North shore, flew to Alaska long enough to finish a bronze sculpture commission, and came back to Hawaii to begin my new adventure.
I explore any subject and style that stimulates my artistic passion. Eventually I always seem to come back to people and all the beautiful ways that we engage with life. A favorite subject is people and water. The energy and power of the ocean combined with the seemingly effortless skill of surfers in the waves is so much fun for me to paint. There’s just something about taking all my old-school training and applying it to such a joyful pursuit that brings me great satisfaction.
