Barbara Young

Born:    Cleveland, OH
Education:  University of Cincinnati, OH
                       Edgecliff, OH
     Barbara Young graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a B.S in Design.  She later studied printmaking at Edgecliff College in Cincinnati.   Her work is included in many public and private collections.
     “My love affair with the art world began with my first box of crayons and has continued with few stops for some 60 plus years.  Every medium I embrace offers the opportunity of discovery, which sets off the creative energy we artists seek.  The passion that drives us all is the hope that we will get better, not just older.  But true creativity is elusive.  It leads with the promise of immortality.  If we are very, very good, we will be remembered.  That is enough.”
       Some of Barbara Young’s many works are in the collections of Cincinnati Bell, Dracket Co., Linclay Corp., Prudential Insurance Co. of Chicago, as well as many other private, corporate, and museum collections around the world.
