Deborah Scott works in the figurative narrative tradition. Her work is a mash-up of classically styled figurative painting and contemporary iconography. Scott’s narratives are based on biography, tarot, mythology and fairytale. Iconic brands and contemporary imagery support the narrative in her work.
She is a graduate of the Drawing and Painting Atelier at Gage Academy of Art. Prior to her art career, she worked in global brand marketing with familiar brands including Cheerios, Betty Crocker, and Amazon.com. In this role she became fascinated with the power of Jungian archetypes, works by Joseph Campbell, and iconography. Developing her understanding and expression of figurative artchetypes is the cornerstone of her work.
