Fatima Young was born of Russian heritage in Europe. She received degrees from F.I.T. and C.W. Post University in New York.
In the tradition of certain Russian Impressionists, Fatima uses the palette knife to catch the earth’s rich moods and bolder chroma to bring out light and dark contrast.
Traveling to majestic places has influenced Fatima Young’s work as well. Plein air painting has become her signature…being one with nature and finding simplicity within complexity. The Bloedel Reserve has showcased her landscapes for several years.
Her passion includes portrait and still life painting in her studio on Bainbridge Island.
