Annie Young, is a Minneapolis-based multi-disciplined artist, living with adult-onset blindness, who is passionate about sharing her message of hope and possibility. She lives inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s famous quote; “The words, ‘I’m possible’ is found in the word impossible.”
Her artwork offers a sense of interplay between texture and color, a journey or storytelling of sorts. Much of her work is inspired by her memories, life encounters (people/travel) and her faith. Unable to see her work, she often invites viewers to answer the question, “Do you see what I feel?” Annie is a self-taught artist.
Annie’s work is collected and exhibited thru out North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Currently, she has artwork and collections available for exhibition viewing: Uniting Borders/Los Angeles CA and Journey to Rock Bottom/Minneapolis MN.
I paint because I have a case of ‘the feels’. I either feel a nudge or hear a whisper or wake from a dream so vivid I HAVE to get my hands covered in paint and move them over the tightly woven threads of a wrapped canvas!
I can ONLY paint when I have 'the feels'. That is huge part of my process. If I don't 'feels' anything...nothing comes out of me--- well, nothing that is worth anything in my opinion...not worth my time trying to make and definitely not worth your time experiencing.
You will probably notice I paint a lot of flowers, trees, hearts ...though simple subjects, they offer a message of hope, joy, friendship, love, compassion, light and so much more! Messages I am always glad to share!! and blessed that I can!
