She taught art for 30 years, constantly finding ways to integrate art projects for the community: painting murals at libraries, hospitals, schools, creating hangings and installations for galleries, festivals and museums. She said she enjoys the interplay of threads, textures and colors in textile art and creates fabrics with paint, dye, silk screen, heavy texture, weaving and dense quilting.

Young's work has been featured in exhibits across the U.S., Great Britain, China and Australia. Her largest work was an installation at the New Orleans International Airport. Notable is an ornament for the White House, currently in the Smithsonian collection. In Louisiana, her work can be seen at the St. Bernard Public Library, New Orleans Juvenile Justice Building and private collections.

Florida Publix Supermarket is the recipient of six of her community paintings. The city of Fort Myers recently installed "Currents,", a 60-foot by 6-foot artwork at the Stars Complex. She shares her expertise at conferences, workshops and classes at Rose Line Weaving Studio in Cape Coral. For more, vista her website at
