Dot Young is a Scottish sculptor based in SE London. She has a BA in Fine Art Sculpture and an MA in Creative Media Arts. She enjoys historical and environmental research, which act as a catalyst to explore narratives through sculptural interpretation and installation.
Her work celebrates the complexities of natural form, its inherent geometry and intersectionality with Islamic art. Her work also celebrates key environmental figures such as Kenyan Nobel Prize recipient and founder of the Green Belt Movement, Wangari Maathai. Through this engagement with Wangari's work she is increasingly concerned with environmental impact and is keen to develop more sustainable practices in her own work.
She exhibits in the UK, sells privately and has recently had her work bought for a permanent collection in London.
