Scott G. Brooks, Painter

Scott lives and works in the U Street neighborhood of Washington, DC. Originally from Flint, Michigan, he earned his undergraduate degree in Fine Arts at the University of Michigan in 1983 before moving to the DC area in 1990. In addition to his career as a fine artist, he has illustrated several children’s books, including The Three Armadillies Tuff and The Ring Bear. Several more are to be published in 2007.

Scott’s paintings and drawings are described as twisted and offbeat, sentimental and disturbing. Subject matter ranges from simple portraiture to intricate narratives. He takes social, psychological, and political issues and coats them with a wry sense of humor.
