|Blending his love of the outdoors,
with an eye for detail and an artistic style that captures every nuance
of a nature scene, Scott has discovered a way to preserve the magic
and emotion of a fleeting moment in his wildlife paintings.
In 1992, Scott founded Thunder Mountain Press to
pursue the marketing of his own limited-edition wildlife prints.
Since then it has continued to grow and prosper.
His education included studying illustration, painting
and print making at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design after
three years of studying at the University of Wisconsin--Stevens
Point, College of Natural Resources. While at Stevens Point, Scott
was commissioned by the Izaak Walton League to create a 65-foot
mural in the college's new central building.
Scott's paintings have enhanced the
covers of more than 25 major magazines and can also be seen on the
highly sought after "Miller Mirrors." His magazine illustrations
have appeared in numerous outdoor publications and he has also illustrated
books for Charles Scribners & Sons, Raintree Publishing Company,
Willow Creek Press and Northword Press.
He is a member of Ducks Unlimited, The Ruffed Grouse
Society, Safari Club International, Pheasants Forever and The Adventurers
Club. Scott has shown his work at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson International
"Birds In Art" exhibition several times, designed conservation
stamps for the National Wildlife Federation and has donated his
art to dozens of organizations dedicated to conservation and the
preservation of wildlife.
