About Carol Young:

Carol Young

“I graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Creative Communication (art education) and headed to Alaska for my next adventure. The Alaska pipeline was just starting and Fairbanks was a hive of activity which meant there was a need for more teachers. I was fortunate to start in secondary art and taught for Thirty years. I also had the the opportunity to take classes at UAF as well as teach a few night classes.

During this time I belonged to the Fairbanks Potters Guild, had work at the Woodway Gallery, and various shows throughout the year. The guild was involved in Empty Bowls, which raised money for the food bank. We also had a sales booth at the Farmers Market every week and rotated manning the booth.

After 42 years in Alaska I decided to move south. After settling in the Cape, I have continued to work with clay, glass fusing, and watercolor, all offered by the Cape Coral Art Center. I have participated in shows and taught a few classes in pottery while feeding my addiction. I think of my work as a bit whimsical, I like color and spontaneity in my work and I feel that comes across. Although I have worked with clay for 45 years I try to keep it fresh and new.”
