Profile of Scott Naismith

Artist Scott Naismith

Born in South Lanarkshire, Scott won the title of "First in Art" in every year of his secondary education at Hutchesons' Grammar before attending Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 1996. In 2000 he graduated with a BDes with honours in Illustration and Printmaking.

Since graduating Scott has been a full time artist with extensive collections at the MacDonald Highland Resort, Aviemore and the Marine Hotel, North Berwick. He is chiefly inspired by the Scottish landscape; the many lochs, glens, mountains and isles of the west coast are favourite subject matter for his distinctive, vibrant and atmospheric oils. The variety of land and seascape and ever changing light of the highlands and islands generates a diversity of approach to each new painting.

Scott has furthermore been inspired by the landscape of Tuscany following a recent and ongoing corporate commission from the Scottish owned 5 star Tuscan retreat "Borgo Di Colleoli"

Scott's artworks hang in private collections across the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and Asia.
