Katherine B. Young, MD, MFA fell in love with the ocean when she was a small child.  She spent a lot of time on the water before going to medical school to train in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.  After working for 10 years as a plastic surgeon in San Francisco, she fulfilled her dream of becoming a full time artist.  She specializes in drawing and painting vast spaces of ocean and sky.  

Her work has won numerous awards and has been exhibited and collected throughout the United States.  She is an Artist Member of the California Art Club and a Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists.
