Australian artist Scott Petrie has achieved much in his career both before and after becoming a successful visual artist, who does what he loves best by making a living as a full time professional artist.
Scott studied Fashion Design at the School of Visual Arts before working briefly for fashion designer Stuart Membery and as a property developer.By the age of 30 Scott decided he had found his true calling as an artist and moved to New York to paint professionally.
Enjoying a return to his creative roots, Petrie has spent time in Switzerland, LA, and Morocco all of which played a major influence in his contemporary painting style. Fine tuned by the natural environment, infused by bold brazes of colour, Scott's work reflects his worldly travels and personal journeys.Much of his work is inspired by his most treasured places such as Morocco, Australia, Europe, Asia and the Arabian Gulf.
Scott is now based within Sydney's inner city suburb of Surry Hills and he also has a studio based in Singapore.He was won several art prizes, and has exhibited in prestigious galleries in New York, Singapore, Sydney as well as internationally.
