Catherine Scott Artist Bio

Following a career as an architect I now spend my time painting in my studio or roaming the high plains of the western United States with my camera. I photograph the old, weather beaten surfaces and patinas of buildings and vehicles.

These rich surfaces and compositions provide inspirations for paintings. “Pentimento” is a term often used to define the revealing of painting or part of a painting that has been covered over by later painting. I have always been attracted to the history implied by this term.

My painting method echoes this concept, involving constant experimentation as I make marks and cover them, leaving earlier marks revealed below later layers. As I add layers and work towards completion, the paintings eventually develop their own history.

Master of Architecture, University of Washington, Seattle, WA.
Bachelor of Fine Arts, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.
Certificate of Graduation, The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
