Scott McQueen

Scott McQueen, a full-time resident artist at Kentuck Art Center, lives in Northport, Alabama. Growing up in Fayette, Alabama, Scott considers himself blessed to have personally known two revered folk artists: Jimmy Lee Sudduth and Rev. Benjamin F. Perkins. Scott, also a self taught artist, averages 20 juried shows each year. 

Scott has been creating and selling his art since 2011. A former minister of 34 years, Scott believes his art is a kind of ministry all its own. “I find a satisfaction in breathing new life into what others have thrown away or overlooked. My art is a simple kind of mirror, reflecting upon our own.” Scott hopes his art inspires beyond the visual; a reminder that, like his artwork, there is an intrinsic value in all of life and that every person is a person of worth.
