Amy Youngblood’s realistic, yet stylish approach to painting enabled her to sell her original works of art at the young age of 15. Early on, she won several regional awards for her horse and running scenes. That, coupled with her successful background in sports, led to a natural focus on sports-related art.
Amy has been commissioned by a number of prestigious golf clubs to paint their signature golf holes. Some of her projects include Oakland Hills Country Club, host of the 2004 Ryder Cup, 3 PGA Championships, and the 2016 U.S. Amateur Championship as well as the prestigious Merion Golf Club, host of 5 U.S. Opens. She boasts two commissions of Augusta National, one of which is a top selling limited edition print.” Amy’s paintings have been featured in publications and the media, including the PGA Magazine, the Cincinnati Business Courier and on NBC Channel 5 News in Cincinnati. In addition, her U.S. Open Ben Hogan painting was selected and resides as a centerpiece of the Ben Hogan Room at the USGA headquarters in New Jersey. In other sports, she has been commissioned by the car racing industry as well as baseball clubs such as the Cincinnati Reds. Private commissions from both famous coaches and athletes have followed.
Also an accomplished interior designer, Amy has a great appreciation for various artwork and mediums as she uses all types in her interior design. Her philosophy is that “Great Art is defined by an ability to draw the viewer in through creative vision, balance, and technical ability, no matter what the style”.
When Amy isn’t painting she is designing beautiful homes and commercial spaces that always include great artwork. She can also be found at Pilates or at the gym, exploring all types of culture, and spending time with her husband, Tom, and two children, Nolan and Elle.
