About Scott

Why I paint…

I’ve always been driven to make things. No matter the medium, I find excitement and wonder in creating something that didn’t exist the day before. Whether that creation succeeds or fails, it drives my creative process forward – eager to begin the next piece.

I’m a proud Oregon native and currently live in Portland with my wife and two sons.
