Scott Hewett
Scott Hewett was born in Bradford, Massachusetts, a small town near the New Hampshire border. There, he attended Haverhill Highschool. Under the instruction of Susan Paradis, art teacher and childrens book illustrator, he received several art awards and realized that art would be his life-long passion. While attending Massachusetts College of Art, he won several awards including the Tom OHara Award for Illustration. He received a BFA, with honors in 1988.

Through the next decade, Scott honed his passion to paint to interpret the world around him on canvas. In 1998, he moved to Sag Harbor, New York, to immerse himself in the scenes and subject matter he loves best. For him, the eastern end of Long Island offers an incredible variety of subject matter. Scott has embraced the area from the farms, to the wooded areas, to the coast and the harbors, the lifestyle and especially the unique Long Island light and renders his subjects into vividly colorful paintings. Scott may paint a still-life or a local landscape with a rusted old truck, but will experiment as he pushes the boundaries making the ordinary into art. His paintings are more often landscapes of quiet places where the natural and human worlds intertwine, noted J. D. Samuelson, an art critic for The East Hampton Star
