Julie Young says she paints as a part of her life's mission: to bring more happiness, beauty, creativity, and positive thinking into the world for others. Using acrylic paint I bring out images of worlds and characters from my imagination, visions from my dreams or meditations, or experiences that I've learned from in a waking state. I intend for my artwork to bring people moments of joy, wonder, laughter, smiles, and new outlooks to provide a moment that requires you to look within your own mind or imagination and create a new thought. I want to inspire others to create something in their own lives. Whether its creating art on a canvas, picking up a new instrument, creating a movement, or creating a change in their life or thinking patterns. Creation and imagination are powerful gifts that each one of us have, and the more we practice and share the act of creating, the more we can realize that we can all create the changes we want to see in our world.
