Born in Rochdale in 1969, Scott developed a passion for art as a young boy, during his late teens 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.
During a spell of living in Taiwan, Scott studied calligraphy and discovered that this beautiful form is valued as high art.
