A native Virginian, folk artist Mary Scott paints in a fresh, whimsical "primitive" style. Always colorful and filled with activity, her work portrays special people, places and events many times from her experience as a Virginia “Horse Show Mother.”
With no formal training, Mrs. Scott began painting because "… my artist friends would not paint the pictures I described to them. So I had to do it myself.” Scott’s first painting; "The Upper Ring at Frying Pan" was completed in 1084 with oil and acrylic.
Reproductions of Scott’s work have appeared on the covers of "The Chronicle of the Horse", "Middleburg Life", and the "Sound" publications.
Mary Trent Scott’s first painting was completed in 1985 with no formal training. Early work records artist’s memories of family events, fairs, horse shows with naïve "bird’s eye" perspective. Mrs. Scott considers herself a narrative painter; she paints stories from family history and Biblical events.
Scott received a B.A. in Religion from
