Artist's Profile


Scott Avett was born on June 19, 1976 in Cheyenne, WY and raised in rural North Carolina. His father worked as a welder and his mother was a reading teacher. Avett grew up in a musical household where education in the arts was encouraged.  Scott is well known for being a founding member of the The Avett Brothers, but he is also an accomplished visual artist. Avett attended East Carolina University, where he studied journalistic broadcasting and painting. After receiving a communications degree in 1999, painter Leland Wallin convinced Scott to pursue a career in visual art. Scott has been painting and printmaking ever since, focusing on figurative work about spirituality and family/human relationships. Avett resides in North Carolina with his wife and three children and tours constantly with The Avett Brothers.
