Artist Biography

Scott is a Southern Baptist housepainter who creates paintings and evangelistic church fliers based on Old Master canvases he has studied in reproduction and in museums from New York to his home in Atlanta. He often chooses episodes from the lives of Christ and Mary and frequently shows biblical figures as African Americans to reinforce the personal relationship with God that he advocates.
