David Scott Meier lives on Sugarloaf Key, near Key
West. Originally from California, he started
painting at an early age and was encouraged by his
father, a talented watercolorist.
attended The Laguna Beach School of Art in the 1970's.
He studied and simultaneously operated a small
gallery/studio which showcased his work alongside
international craftwork and folk art. This visual
experience is still evident in his execution of pattern
in most of his paintings and a preference towards
flattened, cubistic objects or figures.
Fantastic, mythical figures occupy their imaginary
surroundings. For his works' completion, Meier may use
any or all of watercolor, acrylic, oil and gold leaf.
Collage of paper and foils may be random or carefully
patterned to add richer surfaces. The textures and
designs, and humor, invite many more collectors to visit
(and revisit) David Scott Meier's near-sighted worlds.
