Scott Mitchell did not discover his love for painting until late in life. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in computer science from Mississippi State University and spent the next 31 years mainly in the manufacturing world as a software developer. During his free time, Scott began dabbling in oils and started learning what he could from magazines, artist books and television shows. Before long, he realized painting was what he was meant to do, and in 2016 made the decision to become a full time artist. Scott spends most of his days on commissioned pieces – family portraits and family pets – but it is his non-commissioned work which is truly sought after because of the variety of subject matter he paints and his ability to bring each piece to life. In 2020, Scott began working on a commissioned project for a production company painting screen shots for a series of movies as a fundraiser for the year long film project.
“I constantly push myself to the next level and strive towards painting more complex pieces while making sure they look natural.” – Scott Mitchell
