Scott Michael Ackerman is a self-taught artist living and working in Kingston, NY at his new studio known as ‘The Church’. For the last 15 years, Scott has shown his artwork extensively throughout the Hudson Valley and New York State, in addition to numerous shows across the country. His paintings have also been exhibited internationally with shows in both Germany and Holland.
Bright demons, playful poetry, and the wild nature of humankind are frankly expressed on Ackerman’s canvases of old wood, glass windows, and large found doors. A self-taught “outsider” artist, his paintings are celebrated for being honest and relatable as well as colorful and aesthetically pleasing. Although he continues to develop as an artist, he still delivers the spiritual and emotional impact his early work is known and loved for.
Living in Kingston at his newfound ‘Church’ space has only had a positive impact on his creative spirit. He asserts that working in a large and beautiful space, gardening, his three cats, and his gal are what inspire him to paint
