Kara Young started her career in the San Francisco Bay Area. Fifteen years ago she moved to the peaceful mesas of Santa Fe in enchanted New Mexico. This was a longtime dream of hers and a welcome inspiration of soft curves everywhere. She makes the art panels that she works on out of hand cast abaca paper. The paper panels give a wonderful organic feeling to the art work. These panels are 3/4” - 1 1/2” in depth and they are very strong and also very lightweight. They are wired and ready to hang without a frame. Other materials she uses to further enhance these natural directions are cement mixtures to create cracks like those nature displays in dry river beds. The joint compound mixtures allow her to create rock like textures. One of the most important materials Kara creates is the richly fired and patinated copper, which she uses as a focal point in each work of art. They are the signature of her work and the personality of each piece. Kara Young’s goal is to work in partnership with the Forces of Nature ( Fire, Water, Air ) to see what beauty arises and to share this beauty with others through her work. Kara Young’s art pieces are “ one of a kind limited production ” Larger sizes by commission.
