Blythe Scott was born in 1969 in Glasgow, Scotland. In 2012, she moved to Vancouver Island BC Canada where she now works from her home studio as a full time mixed media artist.
Immediately after high school, Blythe was fortunate to be accepted as a student at the prestigious Glasgow School of Art where she graduated with an honours degree in 1991. A few years later, she achieved a post graduate with distinction in Art & Design Education from Strathclyde University.
Since then, she has travelled to and lived in various cities around the world and has worked as a decorative artist in Paris, gallery artist, gallery assistant and a passionate teacher of adults and children.
Today however, her time is entirely dedicated to producing original art.
She uses mixed media, collage and metal leaf to create textured and colourful artworks which exude positivity, visual intrigue and a dreamlike quality. Her work is underpinned by rigorous drawing on a variety of scales, focusing mainly on romantic dreamscapes, quirky harbour towns and dramatic cityscapes.
Blythe exhibits in galleries in Canada, the UK and the US and also sells directly. Her work is in private and corporate collections in North America, Asia, the UK, mainland Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Iceland.
