Born in 1971 in Shepparton, Victoria. Scott’s art career started at a very early age, drawing reproductions of Sydney Nolan’s Ned Kelly on the living room floor. At primary school, he continued to refine his artistic skills, drawing dinosaurs and daleks on the classroom blackboard during lunch time (much to the delight of fellow students and the displeasure of his teachers).
In high school, Scott chose fine art, photography and design as his elective subjects, a happy by-product of which was the need to discontinue his study of maths and science. After Year 12, he moved to Sydney, however unfortunately not in sufficient time to enrol in his preferred tertiary art course.
Not to be deterred, Scott pursued a career in advertising where he spent the next thirty years as a finished artist, illustrator, designer, art director, copywriter, creative director and agency owner. After achieving all he had set out to achieve in advertising, it was time for a change.
Scott turned his hand to the one thing that had preoccupied his mind for most of his life in one form or another - creating the art he wanted to create.
