I have BIG NEWS!  The Original Foodie Prints are back!

“Sweet Potato Blossom,” ©2009 Heather L. Young

Only this time they’ve been printed with the finest archival inks onto lush epson paper…and the best part?!?…I’ve just listed them at $18!  How’s that for the Foodie on your list?  But wait…there’s more…

It always makes me happy to see that my babies have found good homes.  These three made it all the way to Chicago.  Thanks Val!


I still have an Artichoke Blossom and a Fresh Herb or two…but Sweet Potato Blossom has sold out!

These two prints, went to Anna in Athens.  A happy home indeed!


Ah…Monday morning, and I’m content.  Life is good!

I’ve been testing out that new printer…how can I not?  Anywho…if you haven’t all ready checked out *The New Shop*…be sure to take a peek…lots of lady folk and things with wings, of course sprinkled with a little history here and there.    Affordable, archival prints…what more could you ask for?


Oh yeah!  One of my most favorite photographers, Victoria Bennett Beyer, is celebrating one year on Etsy with a give-a-way!  CLICK HERE to visit her site and enter the contest.

New works, old favorites, and much more to come! It’s time to get back to my roots, and paint the things that inspire me.   I have several more paintings to list, and a whole new series in the works!  The best part?  Since I’ve eliminated the middle-man and acquired my own printer, I can give you better prices than ever before!  I’m just getting started here, so be sure to check back…in the meantime, take a quick look at the new shop.…I’d love to here your questions, comments or suggestions!



Seems my Mother was neglected when I put together the Foodie Prints…most of the illustrated recipes were chosen because they were aesthetically pleasing to draw, and well…Mom’s lasagna…(tasty though it may be)…would just look like slop in paint.  Her unbeatable cinnamon toast is good enough to make you slap your own momma, but again…just not pretty in paint.  Anywho…Mom’s been in town visiting this week, and we got to thinking about all this, and most references to Mom in my work have been rather subtle.  For years we have traded “flying things”…she thinks of me when she sees dragonflies, and I think of her when I see hummingbirds.  (A little insight into some symbolism in my work)…Here’s a detail from a painting completed a few years back…

This visit with Mom was especially wonderful because we got to celebrate the 90th birthday of our family Matriarch, my Great-Grandmother Liz.  Last night, 4 generations of gals sat on Grandmother’s bed and looked at old embroidery, family photos, and the like.  I’ve been so blessed to have spent my whole life surrounded by remarkable women…and I’ll cherish the memories from last night forever.

ps. love you Mom!
