Bio of Wildlife Artist Scot Storm

As a youngster, Scot Storm discovered his talent for drawing, sketching and design. These skills eventually led him to North Dakota State University where he earned a degree in architecture. While working in this field, Scot's love of hunting and the outdoors drew him to explore the challenges of wildlife art. In 1987, as a self-taught artist, he entered the Minnesota Duck Stamp contest and placed second. Encouraged by the acceptance of his initial work, he continued to enter stamp contests and enjoyed his first top award by winning the Indiana Pheasant Stamp competition in 1991.

Scot's interest in wildlife art became such a passion, that in 1999, he decided to give up his career in architecture and devote himself full- time to painting. He was then able to challenge himself in every aspect of his creations from composition, to lighting, to the accuracy and psychology of color. Scot's paintings of waterfowl, hunting dogs and other animals all reveal his attention to the fine details that breathe life into every image and draw the viewer into a scene.
