Snail Scott has been a sculptor since childhood, when she annoyed fellow kindergarteners by carving their crayons into tiny freestanding artworks. Pursuing that interest in more socially acceptable ways, she went on to earn degrees in both architecture and studio art from the University of New Mexico. She later received her MFA from Washington University in St. Louis.
Snail has exhibited professionally in ceramics, metals, and other media for twenty-five years, and her work has been shown in galleries from coast to coast, including Grounds for Sculpture and the National Sculpture Society. Since moving to the Midwest, she works in her hilltop studio, lives underground, herds cats, and teaches at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
A tuxedo kitten named 'Monocle' has been immortalized in a piece up for auction to support St. Louis Stray Rescue. The artwork of Monocle and other rescued animals is on display through the end of July at the St. Louis University Art Museum. Please bid at https://www.blacktie-missouri.com//auctions/
