Shelley Redford Young began her art employment at OC Tanners, SLC, Utah after graduating from school where she learned emblematic jewelry design and air brush rendering. While raising her 4 children, she ran an art school for youth called IDIZ in Alpine, Utah and currently holds a 3-year Foundational degree from the Watts Atelier in Encinitas, California with a focus in portrait and figurative drawing and painting, landscape, and still life. She has also studied abroad at the Florence Academy of Art, in Florence, Italy, where she learned old masters techniques of sight-size drawing, and painting representational still lifes from North light. Shelley has been a youth instructor at the Watts Atelier, an instructor for youth, teens, and adults at the Peterson Art Center in SLC, and has been instructing at Visual Arts Institute for 2 years now. She loves instructing as much as making art herself. You can see some of Shelley's work on her blog: Shelleyoungatart.blogspot.com.
