Rachel Scott About
I am a native of Portland, Oregon, and have spent my adult life in
Sausalito, California, Lahaina, Maui, the Oregon Coast, Palau, Pohnpei,
Micronesia and now live in Hilo, Hawaii. I have studied in Portland, Oregon, San Francisco and Maui, and have
traveled extensively around the world
including many exotic locations in the
Pacific. As a result, my art reflects my experiences and observations of different cultures, people and places, as depicted using my own unique artistic styles. I especially appreciate Pacific island cultures and my works emphasize tropical images, especially those of Micronesia and Hawaii. I have spent many hours in the great art museums of the world including
the Musee d' Orsay, the Louvre, the Hermitage, etc., and have an extensive collection of art books. I have been influenced by many great artists, and especially my favorite, Henri Matisse, by thelegendary Hollywood art director and artist, the late John Beckman, and by my dear friend and mentor, the late Jorge Unwin. My works have been displayed in Maui and Palau, and I have
taught students in Micronesia.
The museum quality canvas prints displayed on this site are derived from originals which are acrylic (and some multimedia) on canvas and were created from 1985 to 2007.
