In the words of Natalie Young:
I enjoy finding ways to incorporate organic shapes and colors to create depth in art glass pieces.

Bio

Natalie Young was destined to become an artist from an early age.  She attended North County Technical High School in St. Louis in their graphic arts program.  Natalie has a B.A. in art education from Webster University.  She attended Eureka College before completing her work at Webster.  Natalie has applied her artistic skills in positions as a high school art teacher, childcare director, ceramic store facilitator, and Sunday school art director.

Natalie has lived in Huntsville, AL since 2004.  She is a practicing fine artist, as well as teaching art at the Huntsville Jewish community religious school.  She has mentored and aided a number of other artists in the local community.

Natalie has engaged in a number of art forms over the course of her career.  She specializes in three-dimensional art, working in a variety of media including ceramics, basket weaving, and sculpture.  For a number of years, Natalie created fanciful dragon sculptures out of friendly plastic.  She received a national award for her dragon sculptures and has seen them exhibited along side works by Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol.  After becoming concerned about the long-term durability of that medium, Natalie switched to working in stained glass.

Natalie Young’s work consists of fused glass plates, bowls, jewelry and other items.  She has developed a number of techniques for creating glass car mezuzahs, and glass painting.  Her works range in style from the organic to geometric themes.  She currently exhibits her work in art shows in Alabama, including Panoply and the Monte Sano Art Festival, and in nearby states.  She is perhaps best known locally for works with a Jewish theme.
