While at Holland Park School in 1966, she became a regular at the nearby London Free School night sessions around the Notting Hill area, which brought her into contact with many in the UK Underground. She may have been the inspiration for the song "See Emily Play", written by Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett.

During the 1970s and '80s, she lived and worked with Simon Jeffes, proprietor of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra and had one son, Arthur, born in 1978. She produced the artwork for various album covers for the PCO, including Music from the Penguin Cafe.

Young's sculpture is held in many public as well as private collections. Some of her permanent installations can be seen in St. Paul's Churchyard and Salisbury Cathedral.
