Being the youngest in the family, and having no other means by which to cause her parents anxiety, Susan left her stable job to pursue a career in the Arts.
After completing a degree in Music Theory, Susan ran a Jewish preschool in New Orleans. After ten years in New Orleans, Susan acquired her MFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design.
Susan currently works works from her home in Brooklyn as a freelance illustrator and teaches at Pratt Institute. Her artwork reflects the various characters she has met along the way. www.susangyoung.com
