She photographs what she sees to recapture them later on canvas. However, few of her paintings are real, existing scenes. They are compositions drawn from her personal thoughts and emotions. She has been exhibiting her work in Los Angles and New York and most of her shows have completely sold out on opening night. Among her collectors are Aaron Spelling, Sylvester Stallone and Marlon Brando. Her works hang in American embassies around the world and are part of the permanent White House collection.
Scott grew up in the Philadelphia area and moved West following her dream to be a movie star. She quickly learned that goal was not for her, but became the host of a talk show where she interviewed movie stars. Then she married and quit that work, becoming a full-time mother.
Currently (2002) she resides in homes in Los Angeles and Sun Valley, Idaho, and creates images for limited edition prints published through her own business. Her work appears on Christmas cards, calendars, puzzles, plates and more and even the state lottery printed one of her Christmas scenes on their holiday tickets.
Of her life and work, she says: "I'm a very happy person,
and I think it shows in my work. One thing everyone said to
me without fail is that 'whenever I look at your work it makes
me happy.' And that's good; we have enough stressful things
in the world. We don't need it hanging on our walls."
