Project Description

Scott Boyle

Born a dreamer, Scott Boyle has always been fascinated by the view outside and the world of possibilities. At an early age Scott was noticed to have unusual drawing abilities. Growing up in Indiana, his parents furnished him with art lessons, receiving weekly instruction for 10 years with well-known Brown County artists. 

After moving to the beautiful state of North Carolina, Scott began to paint again in his late thirties. Armed with the ability to travel he began taking workshops and visiting art museums around the country. One of the greatest stimulants to his art however, has been the discovery of painting outdoors, known today as plein air painting. Since 2005, Scott has been organizing paint out events with friends; later the group became known as the North Carolina Plein Air Painters (NCPAP). He is also an active member of the Plein Air Painters of the Southeast (PAP-SE) and the Blue Ridge Realists.

Today Scott’s focus is to share the incredible beauty he discovers while exploring the Southern Appalachians with small plein air pieces and larger studio works.
