Scott Addis Biography
Scott Addis (Montreal, Quebec, 1963- ) was born and raised in a small southwestern town of rural Pennsylvania, where Scott Addis grew to love nature from a very young age. His first art teacher was his father, who would bring him hunting and fishing, and also spent hours sketching and drawing with him, both in nature, and from pictures taken around their mountain home. As Addis grew older, the small town grew constrictive, and Scott ventured out on his own. Addis enlistment in the Navy, which exposed him to different countries and landscapes, after which he settled in Cincinnati. There he took some classes in drawing and composition, and taught himself to paint. He also made his professional debut in one of the oldest, most established galleries in the region named Closson’s. Since then Addis’ career has flourished, with his exceptional art work represented throughout the US and Canada. Addis now resides in Montreal with his wife Lucie and newborn son Eric.
