Michael Young has been involved in all genres of the arts his entire life. He spent part of his career as a classically trained singer and pianist. Always having a deep love of the visual arts, Michael expanded his creative expression to include painting and photography in order to express the full scope of his love of the arts. These paintings and photographs are a culmination of his interdisciplinary approach to the arts. They reveal his love of color and design, and they show his intelligence and fine honed sensitivity to the surrounding world. Michael was raised in Tucson, Arizona, and has resided in Chicago, Illinois, for 35 years.
