Shante J Young

I am an artist of 36 years that love to draw and painting. I am a self-taught artist of several years before returning back to college in 2009 and recently receiving my bachelors degree in studio art from California State University, Sacramento. I am originally from Chicago Illinois but I've lived in California since the age of 14. I have participated in several art shows in the San Francisco Bay Area such as The Art of the Living Black.

I am an artist that enjoys creating pieces of artwork that emphasizes expression. I am inspired by subjects dealing specifically with everyday people in common daily settings. I like to capture moments in time that most people would consider less likely desirable. My artwork has a realistic style but a raw edge.When I create a piece of art my intention is to tell a story by capture feelings and emotions dealing with that specific subject matter (poverty, homelessness, natural disaster, etc.). Variety is the spice of life and as an artist I believe it is good to have a diverse understanding of how to create art of all subject matters and to never limit my usage of materials.I strive to incorporate the same emotions and feelings that I encompass in my realism art as well as in my non figurative or abstract work.
