Jennifer is a Virginia artist who paints vibrant landscape oil paintings of Europe and the American South. With her love of travel, Young creates her colorful vistas from direct experience, painting on location as she explores locations both close to home and beautiful destinations in Europe and beyond.

Jennifer values the experience of painting directly from life. For her, it is the best way to express the joy and wonder she feels when observing the gifts of sunlight and nature. While the resulting plein air paintings are often themselves complete as works of art, they also serve as studies to expand her ideas into larger studio paintings.

In 2013 Young was commissioned to create seven paintings of the Italian countryside for their exclusive use on a new line of wine labels for writer Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun. Jennifer's work has been collected internationally and exhibited in art galleries, museums and art centers in the United States.
