“For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him: Therefore also I have lent him to the Lord; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the Lord. And he worshipped the Lord there.” — 1 Samuel 1:27-28
About the Author
Elspeth Young received a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Brigham Young University. During her studies there, Camille Olson, a professor of Ancient Scripture, inspired Elspeth to begin painting lesser-known women of the Bible and mentored Elspeth’s research. Upon graduation from BYU in 2003, Elspeth began working full-time as a studio artist, photographer, writer, composer/arranger, and graphic artist. Elspeth concentrated her painting primarily in the area of religious art, which is where she finds her greatest fulfillment. She is currently collaborating with her father, artist Al Young, on a series of images featuring heroes of the Book of Mormon, and has begun work on a series featuring latter-day women of faith.
