Scott Lawrence Jacobs


Unlike so many of his contemporaries, who focus on landscapes and seascapes, Jacobs is most fascinated by figurative work.

I think the human form is the most beautiful thing on the planet”  


Scott was born in Hartford Connecticut. He is the ancestor of Daniel Chester French, the Designer of the Lincoln Memorial. Scott grew up with a natural talent and love of art. He has been painting since he was three years old and is mostly a self-taught artist. He has trained under Andrew Jackson and graduated Hartford College of Art while still attending high school. Scott joined the U.S. Navy at age 20 and was commissioned by the US Navy to paint a mural in Djibouti, Africa. After completing his time in the Navy, Scott pursued his passion for art as his career path.  A year later his work had headlined top media including CNN World News, KTLA News and the front page of The Sacramento Bee. Following his success in Southern California, Scott moved to Carmel, CA and opened his own gallery, the premier destination of any artist. 

Scott is a prolific, museum- and celebrity- collected multi-media painter and his paintings are rapidly increasing in price.
