Megan Young

Hi, I’m Megan, a countryside artist living in a quiet corner of England, on the edge of the North Pennines near Hamsterley Forest. I love to create detailed watercolour paintings, mostly influenced by my local landscape and the wildlife that flourishes here.

I was born in Scotton, a small village in Yorkshire, and have lived in the North of England most of my life. As a child I would spend hours drawing and making things and even now I am happiest when working on a painting or craft project. A walk in the Dales, along the coast or through the forest will often provide inspiration for my next picture, the colourful beauty and diversity of nature constantly generating new ideas.

For me, starting a painting is the hardest task, facing a blank sheet of paper can feel like a challenge in itself. But once I start drawing and see the picture begin to form I go into my own world, oblivious to anything else. When in the flow of creativity, art has the power to engage you so fully that you become totally unaware of time or other events around you.

I have experimented with various media but watercolour is still my favourite. I love the loose, quick drying properties and the way it allows the artist to manipulate the paint, delicately blending colours with thin translucent washes and fine detail, watching the image grow and develop until the point I know it’s complete and there is nothing more to add.

My artwork has been displayed in many galleries, county shows, and art fairs throughout Britain, winning prizes for detail and realism. I am an international selling artist with many of my paintings and prints now held in private collections in France, America, Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
