SCOTT WATERS is a professional portrait and landscape painter, commercial artist, photographer and computer geek.

Scott accidentally began drawing at the age of eleven. His parents were delighted to find that he had a skill.

Mr. Waters attended Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota Florida, where he was the Student Council President and majored in Commercial Art and Illustration.

Later, he freelanced and worked as a commercial artist for various advertising agencies while expanding his interests to include photography, copy writing, audio electronics, sound and video production.

In late 1983, Apple Computer dragged him away from the drawing board to help introduce the Macintosh to the Rocky Mountain States. With Apple, Scott worked in public relations, marketing and participated in a variety of projects on the mainland and in Australia.

Eventually, Mr. Waters escaped to Hawaii where the tropical light brightened his palette while he worked as a computer consultant and commercial artist, completely missing the last part of the twentieth century.

After a divorce and a painting sabbatical in Southwest Britain, Scott relocated to St. Augustine, Florida, where has been known to paint, take photos and search for good seafood.

Scott’s work has been shown at Maui’s Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center, The Crossroads Art Center in Richmond, Virginia, Butterfield Too Gallery in St. Augustine and on his iPad to anyone interested.
