Scott Moore

In 1970, while in his senior year at California State University, Long Beach, Scott joined the U.S. Marine Corps where he worked as an artist on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. At 20 years old, he was responsible for designing and building oversize backdrops that would adorn the main ballroom of the Hawaiian Hilton for the Pacific Fleet’s Marine Corp Ball, not to mention any other art related project that came across his desk.

Returning to civilian life in 1972, Scott continued his art studies at Long Beach State and in 1973 married Carol LaGette, his childhood sweetheart (a Downey High 1971 graduate). They moved to Laguna Beach in 1980 where Scott pursued his full time artist career, exhibiting at the summer festivals and raising their two children, Brady and Hayley. Scott is a past president of the Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Sawdust Festival Benevolence Fund.

Scott holds prestigious memberships in the American Watercolor Society, New York and the National Watercolor Society, Los Angeles. His watercolors and oil paintings are collected around the world and are in numerous private and corporate collections.
