Scott Stan, WSI
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until 2015 that my friends and family persuaded me to open an art business. I am so thankful to them for their persistence. Watercolor is my favorite medium, and I sometimes enjoy combining ink with watercolor to add some fine details to my work. My paintings give others a chance to see the world that I see and to share in that experience.
In 2019, my painting, "Chestnut Sided Warbler" was selected for the Indiana Watercolor Societies annual juried art show and displayed at Newfields Indianapolis Museum of Art. In 2023, a second plainting, "Sora Rail" was selected for the annual juried show earning "signature member" status in the Indiana Watercolor Society.
Currently, I am in my 16th year as the women’s soccer coach at Taylor University. Before that, I spent 8 years at Manchester College coaching the women’s soccer team and being a professor in the exercise and sports science department. My teaching career also includes 8 years of teaching high school biology and environmental science where I preferred to make detailed drawings for my students instead of just putting up words on the whiteboard.
When I paint, I want people to see the world that I see and to see it free of distractions. When I am bird watching, fishing, or taking a hike in the wilderness, I feel close to God. So much of God's creation is t is right there for us to discover. My paintings let you see what I have discovered drawing you into my experiences, and I hope you enjoy the experience.
My paintings have been sold to collectors in many locations: Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, North Carolina, Arkansas, New York, Alabama, California, Texas, and internationally in Canada, England, Mexico, Australia, China,and Togo – West Africa.
