Artist Scott Meier

I find man to be the most interesting animal ever created.  Every face has a past and a story.  Using traditional painting techniques, and influenced by history and religion, I explore what it means to be human; to exist in an ever changing environment where we fuse our past and our present to create our future.

My first love is portraiture and the human figure but I have recently started to explore still life painting.  I paint my still lifes directly from life with natural north light in my studio in Pennsylvania.

I was born in Iowa but I grew up in Pennsylvania.  I earned a B.F.A. from the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School and I went on to study with Daniel Greene in New York.  My work appears on book covers and hangs in private and corporate collections around the country.  I have taught classes at the Art Association of Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg Art Center, The Carlisle Arts Learning Center, The Carlisle High School Art Enrichment Program as well classes in my studio.
