Jeff Young was born and raised in Houston,Texas and is a 6th generation Texan. His III great grandfather fought and was wounded at the battle of San Jacinto in 1836. Jeff has always been a student of Texas and American history and this is reflected in his artwork. Portraits of western characters, landscapes, wildlife often being his chosen subject matter. Jeff has an uncanny way of capturing the essence of his subjects in a way that facilitates an emotional and inspiring connection! He received his Bachelors degree in Fine Art in 1994 and attributes some of his style to one of his professors, the 1981 State Artist of Texas-Harry Ahysen...Most of Jeff's artwork comes from things that he finds personally inspiring but also is available for select commissioned work.
