Scott has been painting since he was five years old. A native Californian, he has lived in several locations until finally settling down in Oakland in 1977. Throughout his life he has explored both the inner and outer worlds not only through his painting, but also through ceramics, theater, printmaking, and photography. His works have been exhibited in several shows in the East Bay, San Francisco, and Santa Fe. Scott is also an avid professional gardener and landscape designer, and includes himself as a member of the LGBTQ+, Buddhist, and Parkinson’s communities.
