About the Artist  │  Artist Statement  │  Curriculum Vitae

Scott began stone sculpting at the Creative Arts Center in Dallas, Texas. Soon after, he traveled to Pietrasanta, Italy, to learn more about this ancient form of art.  While in Italy, he was able to study in the same setting as many renowned sculptors had before him. As he learned about the varieties of stone available and how each would carve differently from the next, a passion for the art quickly ensued and has since led to a lifelong passion for sculpting stone.  Scott's continuous search for knowledge about stone sculpting has also taken him to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and Ventura, California. It was in San Miguel de Allende, Scott learned the process of bronze wax casting.  His abilities as a sculptor were further enriched during his studies in Ventura, California. His studies in California exposed him to a new and vast array of stones available for his sculpting projects.  Scott returned to the Dallas area and served as a resident artist and instructor at the Creative Arts Center between 2004 and 2007.

 

Scott's body of work has grown throughout the years to include beautiful pieces now held in private collections to commissioned works for large, outdoor installations.  All of his works have been carved from a wide array of stones that include basalt pillars, alabaster, soapstone, various marbles, and limestone.  His array of work includes some of his original stone pieces being cast into bronzes.  Once each bronze has been cast, Scott carefully selects the patina to bring out the beauty and inspiration that came while creating each work of art.

 

Scott currently resides in Texas.  He continues his lifelong passion as a stone sculptor while also combining his desire for helping others as a Registered Nurse.
