I’m an addict, in all senses of the word. As a kid, I was addicted to art since age 4, and as an adult, got into some pretty self-destructive behaviors in my college years and after that led me to solid recovery in two different 12-Step programs which I still attend today. My work focuses on addiction in modern society in subtle aspects: in love, sex, religion, and technology. Check it out at http://instagram.com/jennyyoungart/. I’m fascinated with how the “American Dream” is embedded into the core of our culture and traditional morality itself, and hope to illustrate the paradoxes and problems that this causes through my work in a humorous way. I hope to inspire others to greater self-awareness and love through my art, and I’m a strong proponent of free speech, inclusivity, and intellectual, racial, and religious diversity. I’m proud to have been able to make art that appeals to liberals and conservatives alike, and love the idea that art can bring people together by reaching past dogma that people put up to separate themselves from each other, to arrive at a universal human experience.
