As an artist, Scott has explored a variety of mediums in the creation of art from painting, sculpting, printmaking, and drawing. The use of materials has become an important focus for Scott and has ultimately influenced not only his art, but also his personal connection to them by understanding their ecological significance. Scott has been making handmade paints for the past 16 years and within the past 8 years has begun to gather, process, and use local minerals as a source of pigment for the creation of art. Educating others about the use of natural mineral pigments in the creation of art has been a focus over the past ten years through classes he has taught to children and adults. The use of sustainably harvested local mineral pigments will also become a part of Hemp Technologies in the near future through their use in lime based paints.
Scott has also begun to integrate productive landscapes such as fruit orchards, vegetable gardens, medicinal gardens, rain gardens, pollinator gardens, bioswales, bioremediation, mycelium and mushrooms, and in general the principles of permaculture into the function of aesthetically designed environments.
Scott enjoys spending time outdoors absorbing the various elements that give form to the unique environments in which we live and explore. He also enjoys creating art, listening to music, and eating fresh food.
