Abstract Expressionist Artist. Creator. Visionary.
Scott has been creating art since he was five years old. He has had several group shows in NYC in the 90's, and then took a break. He is inspired by Mark Rothko and his color field paintings. Scott is also related to the late Fredrick Law Olmsted. Having a car accident in 2017 which left his dominant hand and right side disabled from a TBI.
He now paints 80% with his LEFT Hand. The Right Hand suffers from spasticity but is used to help sign his signature, and to create his secret straight line technique.
Scott decided to start painting again and uses his non dominant hand (left) to create abstract acrylic geometric paintings, abstract expressionist art, digital art, and macro photography. Scott also enjoys macro photography.
