Isabel Young has specialised throughout her career in the enduring theme of landscape and environment, subjects that continues to inspire her current work. Her practice has explored a range of subjects all relating to landscape, including, environmental issues, climate change, our relationship to other living things, our experience of landscape and the influence of the built environment on external spaces. Her mission is to understand landscape at the deepest possible level so as to establish a cross-disciplinary practice that combines landscape architecture with environmental art and fine art.
Young graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2002 with a Masters in Fine Art and has exhibited her paintings and drawings in galleries and museums nationally and internationally including the Jerwood, John Moores, Flowers, The Lowry and The Laing Art Gallery. More recently her practice has been influenced by landscape design, which has culminated in a major piece of research over a 2 year period resulting in a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Greenwich (completed Sept 2012).
