An Illustrated Lifestyle - Interview with Terri Scott

Can you tell us a little bit about the moment you realized you were an artist?

The first time I realized I was good at art was in first grade when I won first place in an art show. I didn’t start seeing myself as an artist until I started visiting, then eventually getting adopted, by my artist grandmother. She had so many art supplies and we would always make art together. I was in middle school, working on a portfolio to get into the gifted arts program in high school with help from Gran, when I realized I wanted to be an artist.
