About our guest

Artist Judy Young - The Mill Village Artist

Preserving Our Textile Heritage Thru Art:

fine art prints of scenes portraying the landscape of a cotton mill

As a self-taught artist, I have spent many years as a working artist in different genres and mediums. I have traveled our beautiful state of South Carolina painting hundreds of murals in homes, schools, churches, hospitals, and other businesses. As of late I have returned to the work I started back in the early 90's and that is this featured folk art.

I feel truly blessed to have grown up on a cotton mill village in the 1950s and 60's when the textile industry was at its peak. Thanks to our hardworking elders who worked in the textile mills, my generation was able to have a better life. Sadly most of those elders and textile mills have passed on. In the 1990's I was inspired to use my art as a tribute and to illustrate the stories of the cotton mill people and neighborhoods. The neighborhoods may have been in different cities and states, but the stories are similar. The inspiriation that I had way back when still burns deeply within me this day!

I appreciate you visiting my website! (millvillagefolkart.com) I hope you will visit often as I plan to add other items with different themes as inpsiration leads me and time allows!

Warmest regards,

Judy

a.k.a. "The Mill Village Artist"
