Scott Jacobs is a dynamic and creative force in Fine Art. He studied at the Hartford College of Art, joined the Navy Seabees as a heavy equipment operator, was “found out” by the Navy and put to work painting murals, including a monumental one for Camp Lemonier in Djibouti, Africa.
After mustering out of the Service in 2008, Scott resumed his career as an artist and painter. In less than a year, one of his signature figurative works was featured on CNN World News! It would seem some are bred to talent as Scott Jacobs is the Great Nephew of Daniel Chester French, designer of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington and the Minuteman in Concord, Mass. His artistic interests are wide and deep, but always seem to return to the human form.
“I think the human body is the most beautiful thing on the planet.”
Scott’s expressions in oil and watercolor have won national recognition and a host of celebrity and corporate clients. He is an artist poised on the edge of greatness. He lives and paints in Carmel-by-the Sea, and can be viewed at work most days at the Pegasus Collection-the Art of Scott Jacobs, on Lincoln, just south of Ocean Ave.
“I am an artist because painting makes me feel alive, I do my best to carry this life and energy I feel, while painting into each painting. To me people are the most interesting, diverse, heartbreaking, and uplifting subjects to paint; so I paint them”
