Born in Rochdale in 1969, Scott developed a passion for art as a young boy. During his late teens, whilst roadying for punk bands, Scott spent his free time sketching punks and designing album covers. It was this body of work that earned him a place at Cheltenham University, where he gained his fine art degree.
In 2002, his much-loved studio burnt to the ground and he lost everything. Unable to continue both practically and emotionally, Scott threw himself into teaching, believing that his art career was now just part of his past.
In 2011, Scott moved his family to Verona and, ironically, moved into an apartment directly above an art shop. Feeling inspired to pick up his brushes again, he began to draw the stunning architecture. With his passion rekindled, he returned to England and built a studio in his garden. He hasn't stopped painting since.
