About the Artist

Matthew Scott Myers left College with an english degree and dreams of drinking and writing. However, he wound up traveling the US and Europe in a middling, floundering, and drinking-a-little-too-much, rock n roll band.
Somewhere along the way, he picked up some cheap oils and taught himself how to paint. For the last ten years, Matthew has been dancing while he paints, raising two daughters who dance while he paints and married to a lovely woman who wishes he would put on some pants when he dances. In the last year his work has blossomed into a many splendored thing. Part Realism. Part Colorful play. He describes his paintings as Saturated Realism, or sometimes Acidism, and then sometimes impressionism. Scott is looking to capture the vibrant world he sees around himself. He hopes to capture the earth joyfully.
