THE ARTISTS OF SAFEART

SCOT STORM

While working as an architect, Scot Storm’s love of hunting and the outdoors drew him to explore the challenges of wildlife art. In 1987, as a self taught artist, he entered and placed second in the Minnesota Duck Stamp contest. Thereafter Scot’s interest in wildlife art became his passion, leading him to many great achievements including the 2004 Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Federal Duck stamps. His paintings of waterfowl, hunting dogs and other animals all reveal his attention to the fine details that breathe life into every image. This mastery of detail and the living landscapes that it produces are what led Ducks Unlimited to name Scot as the “International Artist of the Year” for 2005.

In her pursuit of her favorite activity, big game hunting, Cynthie has traveled all over north America and been to Africa Six times taking many fine trophy animals. This love of hunting combined with a degree in Zoology and an interest in avian taxidermy gives her the tools that she needs to create the finely detailed images that have placed her in the upper echelon of the artistic world. Cynthies long list of artistic achievements include winning ten State Duck Stamp contests,the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundations artist of the year and a ten time featured artist for ducks unlimited.
