Susan G. Young


The Break

from Under the Influence

Susan G. Young participated in the Under the Influence show in Fall 2016 at Village West.

Young was born in Baton Rouge, LA to a large family full of over-educated engineers, doctors and world leaders. Being the youngest in the family, and having no other means by which to cause her parents anxiety, Susan left her stable job to pursue a career in the Arts.

After completing a degree in Music Theory, Susan ran a Jewish preschool in New Orleans. After ten years in New Orleans, Susan acquired her MFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design.

Susan currently works from her studio in Brooklyn as a freelance illustrator and serves as Chairperson of the Associate Degree Department at Pratt Institute. Her artwork reflects the various characters she has met along the way.
