Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Deborah Scott

I work in the genre painting tradition.  My work is a mash-up of classically styled figurative painting and contemporary iconography.  My narratives are based on biography, tarot, mythology and fairytale.  Iconic brands and contemporary imagery support the narrative in my work.

I am a graduate of the Drawing and Painting Atelier at Gage Academy of Art.  Prior to my art career, I worked in global brand marketing with familiar brands including Cheerios, Betty Crocker, and  In this role I became fascinated with the power of Jungian archetypes, works by Joseph Campbell, and iconography.  Developing my understanding and expression of figurative artchetypes is the cornerstone of my work.
