“I’m a storyteller. Whether I’m illustrating a childhood memory or depicting a special location in California, I’m just trying to tell a good story. Hope you enjoy listening to my tales.”

Tying Knots, Balboa by Scott Moore

Scott Moore is known internationally for his watercolors and oils, and over the past 37 years has received numerous awards for his work. He incorporates two scales within the same painting, giving a personal insight into the story he is telling. His unique perspective comes from childhood experiences, with many of his paintings containing objects from the 1950's and 1960's.

Scott grew up in Bellflower, California, playing baseball, delivering newspapers and drawing in his spare time.  His father, Carl, was a water-colorist and graphic designer for an advertising agency in Los Angeles.  Working with art materials brought home by his father, Scott developed a skill for drawing.  Scott was an illustrator for the United States Marine Corps at the age of 20, graphic designer at age 22, and full time artist/painter by the time he was 29.

Scott painted traditional watercolors up until 1985, receiving numerous awards on a national level. Around that time, while showing at the Festival of Arts, he not only added oil painting to his skills, but began transitioning into the world of surrealism.  Splitting his time between telling his personal stories in oil and clients’ stories through his commissioned paintings, has kept Scott glued to his easel.  His unique method of incorporating two scales in the same image has become his trademark in the art world.
