Scott Hartman was born and raised in a small rural town in Pennsylvania. He graduated from college and moved to Long Island to pursue a teaching career in art. After 33 successful yeaars of working as an art teacher and Central Office Administrator in the Brentwood School District, Scott returned to creating, exhibiting and selling his original artworks. A self-taught watercolorist who has painted realistic landscapes and still-life images for over 40 years.One of his paintings, "Boston Sewer" was selected by the National Watercolor Society to appear in their Juried Member's Show.
In 2014, Scott decided to explore another media: woodworking. In September of 2014, Scott was accepted into the Thos. Moser Furniture Company's Customer-in-Residency Program in Freeport, Massachusetts. From this experience, Scott used this knowledge to design and create one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture, ranging from accent tables, bookshelf units, and live edge coffee and dining room tables. Using hardwoods from a lumber mill in Pennsylvania, near where he grew up, Scott handpicks and finishes the wood to effectively complement each unique metal base.
Many of Scott's paintings are inspired from the artworks of by artists: Andrew Wyeth, Robert Bateman and Bradley Shoemaker.
