Scott Meier is an artist whose work comes from a life of service and observation of human nature. As a police detective, Scott has seen the best and the worst of humanity. “I have spoken with many people, often at some of the worst times of their lives, either due to what has happened to them or from what they have done to others. At these moments, I get to connect with people, often at a very deep level.” It is from these experiences that Scott draws upon in his artwork. Scott uses traditional oil painting techniques and each painting is an exploration of what it means to be human. His paintings capture the deep, inner essence of who we are; that quality that is common to each us but is expressed uniquely by everyone. Scott grew up with a love of art and went to the University of Hartford where he earned a degree in Art. Scott felt the call to service and spent time in the military and law enforcement while he continued to follow his passion for art and painting. His experience has put him in a unique position to create deep and meaningful works of art. “We are more alike than we are different,” Scott says. It is this understanding, seen up close as a police detective, that allows Scott to connect with his subject.
