I just wanted to let all of you know that we are growing in SO many ways!  i am currently working on a new space where we can all network our little hearts out and share our work  and techniques if we so choose or just sit back and see what other people are doing…

my goal is to have our new site up and running before the end of the year…

New Workshops!! :o)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari J Young @ 12:16 pm


If you are hungry for a creative challenge, enjoy art projects, photography, writing and are ready to do some fun, gentle exploring, please come and join us for six weeks of creativity, self-discovery, new friendships, play and global connection.

All you will need are a few art supplies, a camera, a journal and a willingness to be fully present, to play and explore.

In the first week we will start off with guidelines and introductions. We will  get to know our new fellow classmates, see each other’s artwork, photography and support one another through this process. Workshop participants are located all over the world so we are all contributing to creating a new global community.

Each week we will start by doing some simple, warm up exercises to get the creative juices flowing and to reconnect with our creative selves.  Then we’ll explore where we’ve been and where we want to go next through writing exercises, photography and art projects.

Vivid Life Workshops are taught by Kari J Young – Artist, Creative Life Coach and Workshop Facilitator.

“My hope is that, through these workshops, I can share some of what I’ve learned with you and help you to reconnect with your truest, creative self.

“Let’s play and have some creative fun together… I can’t wait!!”

These images are about looking inward and sensing our place in the world and being at peace with where we are.I have a fascination with beetles so she has a beetle body and no arms. She is protected by her wing casing. Who needs arms when we have wings to fly…

line drawings

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kari J Young @ 12:21 pm

Here are a few images of a new series I’ve been working on. These are line drawings incised with an awl and filled in like a stain with oil paints. I will continue with this series in the next couple of weeks (after the holidays have blown over!).

This series is the answer to my question, “How do I get my line drawings that I’ve been sketching in my little sketchbook, into my encaustic paintings?” These are what came from that pondering…
