Luna Rienne Gallery is pleased to present Wildflower Child, a collection of new work by Ursula Xanthe Young.

Opening Reception Saturday, November 18, 6-9PM
Showing through December 18, 2017

Flower Child is an homage to both the Victorian fairy illustrations and paintings that Ursula Young grew up with in England and the colorful free-spirited love vibrations that were present 50 years ago during San Francisco’s Summer of Love. She provides a modern-day interpretation of the whimsical drawings against a Northern Califorinia background with an emphasis on the wildflowers abundant after the wettest winter in recent history.

Ursula Xanthe Young is a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer whose urban fairy tale images have become a trademark of street culture in San Francisco and beyond. Her fine-lined illustrations and colorful modern paintings exude a style that is unique and appealing to art lovers of all kinds.

Young grew up in the green rural dales of Northern England and has studied art in New York, Florence, Vermont, Oslo, and London. After graduating from Parsons School of Design (BFA Illustration 1996), she moved to San Francisco’s Lower Haight district and spent nearly a decade there. Following a stint in Alaska, Ursula has settled in Grass Valley CA, where she now lives and works.
