Stephen Scott Young

BIOGRAPHY

American, b. 1957

Born in Hawaii, Stephen Scott Young spent most of his early life traveling around the United States. Eventually settling in Florida, where he attended the Ringling School of Art and Design, Young has devoted his career to depicting the southern United States and the Bahamas. Exhibited nationally and internationally, Young is one of the nation's premiere realist watercolorists and etchers.
Young's work is also on display at several major American museums, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art, and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.
He is featured in the permanent exhibits of the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and the Greenville County Museum in South Carolina. In May of 2012, Young began exhibiting a retrospective of the past twenty five years of his career painting the Bahamas. The opening at Christie's in New York City coincided with the publication of Once Upon an Island: Stephen Scott Young in the Bahamas, written by art historian William H. Gerdts.
