Mira Scott

From her childhood in rural Quebec through almost four decades on Hilton Head Island, Mira Scott has responded artfully to the colorful, animated world around her.

Her zoo-keeping, dolphin-training father nurtured her detailed understanding and love for the creatures of the woods, sky and water. Her mother’s Russian Polish heritage have influenced her work with appearances every once in a while of the detailed repetitive patterns often seen in European folk work. She grew from a young watercolorist surprised by her increasingly vibrant colors, to an accomplished etching artist working in monochrome, until colors returned to her art and attitudes – with a graceful vengeance. One series of paintings depicting flowers, creatures and scenes features nearly every color but black. And her recent work expands her colorful vision to blend real scenes with dreams and memories. Her unparalleled use of brilliant color is her finest attribute adding to the feeling of a grand celebration and sense of place.

Mira has presided at Picture This Gallery on Hilton Head Island, SC since 1985. She and her exhibit space stay involved in the community’s main streams – and tributaries – serving as a gathering spot for artists, patrons and friends. Mira has hosted noted artists, student art shows, local authors and other special events at the south-island gallery. Mira and her partner, photographer Mark S. Tierney, have always felt it important to bring a level of social value to anything they do at PTG.

She has been a longtime supporter and recent chairman of the Island School Council for the Arts.
