About Brian Scott


Brian Scott, B.Ed., M.Ed., DFA Hon., received his Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia, and his Masters Degree in Art Education from Western Washington University. His Diploma of Fine Art was received with Honours from the Vancouver School of Fine Art.


Brian’s works have sold internationally in the U.K., Hong Kong, Germany, Holland, Norway, Switzerland, Australia, the U.S. and in his well-established Canadian market.

Brian was on the Faculty of North Island College for 20 years where he taught drawing, colour theory, and design in the Fine Art Programme. He also taught for the Emily Carr College and Design Outreach Programme for 14 years.

In 2002 Brian accepted a Government appointment to the Board of the B.C. Arts Council.


One day, a gold Cadillac came slowly up the driveway, to Brian Scott’s Black Creek Gallery. Out jumped a very handsome blond haired, blue eyed man, accompanying actress Kim Cattrall. Miss Cattrall has participated in 70 movies during her long career—she started in London at only 16, after having grown up in the Comox Valley.

Scott was commissioned to paint the family home in Little River. The home was previously the lower ranks barracks at RCAF station Comox, and was moved to its current location.

Cattrall also purchased a large painting for her East Hampton New York home.

The artist was also thrilled when Charlie, personal assistant to James Cameron (Titanic and Avatar) approached him to be the resident artist at their Beaufort winery in Merville.

Scott painted a large round at the entrance way, along with paintings of the barrel room and view of Mount Albert Edward.

Brian loves to wow the tourists with his painted cars and painted clothes.

His favourite patron is Sheldon Smithens, from Canadian Pickers on the history channel. Scott and Smithens were Frat Brothers at UBC in the 1970s.

The show is hugely successful, however; Theresa—Sheldon’s wife gets tired of every female in southern Alberta hitting on her husband. Sheldon has a very cute smile that drives the ladies of all ages crazy!

His Unique Style

Expressionist oil painting produced on location is Brian Scott’s main passion. His emphasis on design and composition with a full spectrum of colour have become the trademark of his paintings.

Brian was thrilled to do a showing with Robert Bateman on Hornby Island, to promote a new arts centre.
