Laurence Young grew up in Newton, Massachusetts. He graduated with honors from the University of Hartford in 1974 with a Bachelors degree in Art Education.

In 1979 Young earned his Master’s degree in Art from Rhode Island SchooI of Design. Initially a plain-air painter is now a full time studio artist, living

in Provincetown, MA. Working out doors from life has served him well in

his studio work. His innate color sense sets him apart by using colors of close value creating a subtle vibration. Young incorporates line work which comes and goes. within the work. Sometimes the drawing articulates the image while other times it adds another whole dimension.

There is a quiet and volatile quality to Laurence’s work that draws the viewer in. His love for nature is visceral while his seascapes rock gently with a sense of

the waters ripple as it ebbs and tides. Then there is his life drawings and figurative work that skillfully represents the figure but then is abstracted with color and shape.

Laurence has had a successful career of 30 years as a working artist. His paintings are represented all over the country through various galleries. Young is also part of

public and private collections.
