My name is Scott Meier and I'm an artist and avid reader. My work is a visiual diary of my journey of understanding. Using traditional painting techniques, and influenced by history and religion, I explore what it means to be human. I describe my style as "Neo-Baroque".
My first love is portraiture and the human figure but I have recently started to explore still life painting. I paint my still lifes directly from life with natural north light in my studio in Pennsylvania.
I was born in Iowa but I grew up in Pennsylvania. I earned a B.F.A. from the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School and I went on to study with Daniel Greene in New York. My work appears on book covers and hangs in private and corporate collections around the country.
