About Scott

Born and raised in rural upstate New York, I've always exhibited a fun and quirky love of life.  Creative from an early age and known as the eccentric artist within my circles, I just assumed I was an undiscovered genius and it was only a matter of time before everyone realized my prodigious talents.  Oh, to be naive again.

A decade after high school, living it up at college, working in galleries in Provincetown and New York, graduate school, and a modest showing of my art, I returned home and settled down with a BFA in Painting and Drawing (SUNY Purchase) and an MAT in Art Education (Sage Graduate School) under one arm and boat load of stories, experiences, friendships, and a ton of artwork under the other arm.

Now employed full-time as a graphic designer in a comfy 9-5'er and taking on some freelance work in my spare time, I spend my days getting wild in my raised-bed garden trying to tame the mint and talk the asparagus through their teen angst.  I'm beyond grateful for my humble parcel of land and my family with whom I get to share it.
