About Dan Young

Dan Young was born in Denver and grew up in western Colorado.  "Camping and fishing throughout the Rocky Mountains as a child has been a strong influence on me and my work," says Young. 

He attended Colorado Institute of Art hoping to find a direction in art. After graduation, he moved to Dallas, Texas, to pursue the commercial art field.  Even with a successful illustration career, the landscape was always calling him back.  In 1989, he returned to Colorado to begin painting full time.  Young enjoys painting the rural life of the west, the ranches that dot the mountain valleys and river bottoms.  He states, "Though I am a landscape painter, I like introducing hints of man's presence into the landscape. Sometimes I feel I'm in a race to paint a disappearing way of life.  It's hard to watch so many of the family farms and ranches being swallowed up by development."

Young feels painting from life was the most important stepping stone for his career.  Most days he can be found painting along a back road or beside a mountain lake. 

Young was the Featured Artist in the 2018 Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale.
