Inside Scott’s studio.

What are the major themes you pursue in your work?
I enjoy painting both abstract and figurative work.

What was the best advice given to you as an artist?
I started painting late (at age 30), so I did not get much advice from anyone.

Working on a painting.

Prefer to work with music or in silence?
I usually listen to Rock and Roll music when painting–singing along of course.

If you could only have one piece of art in your life, what would it be?
How about Hauptweg und Nebenwege by Paul Klee.

    Quircky . interesting titles. wonderful overlay of colours and mark making abilities.
    These are the words that come to mind on viewing your work.
    It’s great to invite the viewer in and explore and that’s how your work appears to me

  8. Scott: Love your work. As a collage artist, your collages like “More,More,More” and its linear forms and the fade from dark bottom to light top, have influenced my work. check out my pinterest page at marianne larsen reninger of visual fragments/collage. If you are ever in Asheville, N.C. look me up! Marianne P.S. Love Canada!
