I am a maker stubbornly intent on living the artist life, whatever that is – I am discovering its beauty and challenges every day. I live a life of my own making among hand-made objects, with family I discovered along the way; it’s certainly not as glamorous as it is unpredictable.

I am a fine arts graduate from SUNY-Stony Brook and Penn State, where I primarily studied printmaking, alongside an interest in ceramics. My work borrows meaning from material metaphors as I become serially engaged in various making/building processes (spinning wool, woodworking, etc.) It references the relationships, rituals, and restrictions at the intersection between body and space.

    Hi Alex…Paul Baker here, one of Scott’s best friends. Yes, DO come to SF. It’s a crazy city, but your down-home midwest mindset will keep it all in perspective. Oddly, SF has a small art scene; nothing like NYC or probably even Chicago. When you’re in town, have Scott bring you over to my studio. 330 sq feet; pretty complete wood shop. Impressed by how you make your own thread. Wow—back to basics. YOu can see my work at best, Paul
