Having always identified himself as an artist, Scott Tezlaf began drawing and admiring art from the time he was a young boy. As an adult, Scott taught himself to paint through studying the masters and experimenting with light and color. His formal education is in science, in which he holds a degree in Physics—giving him a unique insight into the nature of light and vision. Scott currently lives in Austria but has spent nearly a decade traveling the world, living in Thailand and Switzerland, drawing inspiration from the people and places he has seen. He is originally from the United States.
