Elizabeth Young (United States of America)
In December of 2000, I had completed my third-level personal writing
course with The Institute of Children's Literature, West Redding,
Connecticut (Bino's Secret Adventure having been one of my assignments). I
have spent 20 years on independent writing with the help of 5 journals-- 3
illustrated, 2 written, and a separate journal for collecting nocturnal
dreams that I later turn into stories.
Employed as a Part-time Children's Room Shelver at Richland County
Public Library in Columbia, South Carolina, and in later years working for
Barnes & Noble College Bookstore (the first one to open in New York City) I
had discovered numerous treasures in literature, a world of thoughts and
colors and feelings spread out among the shelves that I wanted to delve into
and explore even more, it was like a catacomb of hidden treasures waiting to
feed my mind. The desire to express my mind soon followed.
Beginning with pencil and paper in early grade school, I had also
developed a love of art, moving up to crayons and water paints in later
years, drawing sceneries from favorite childhood TV shows and from what I
saw around my neighborhood while growing up. Cutting construction paper and
cardboard into trees, flowers, animals, building paper dollhouses, gluing
strings, yarns, and beads into decorations, knitting, and crocheting had
become hobbies of mine at an early age. My love of art developed alongside
my love of writing leading me to earn my BA Degree in Studio Art from
Hollins College, Virginia.
Thank you again.
