Barb Young
A Single Bud
(1 of 5)

At the age of 48 Barb Young attends Grand Rapids (MI) Community College. She then plans to study photography and art history at a four-year college. She is married with two sons. She writes, "I have always been a very creative and artistic person, but was never able to draw very well. With computer art software, I can use my artistic talent to create artwork that I could only dream of in the past...Most of my pieces have been created with a single photo, manipulating them in Photoshop, until I am satisfied with what I see." These five images shown here are all based on photos of flowers. She is especially adept at showing these flowers in a new light, often carefully framed.
