About the artist: Scott Beaty served in the U.S. Navy from 1978 – 2001, spending his last day in uniform at his retirement ceremony on 9/11. Scott currently lives in Arnold, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, and received his Master of Fine Arts degree (Sculpture) under the VA’s Vocational Rehabilitation Program. Scott found peace and happiness again through art while fighting alcohol & opioid addictions relating from his service-connected injuries.
With this rekindled spirit, Scott founded the nonprofit organization Visions for Vets and spends his days providing the healing powers of art to Veterans in the St. Louis area, successfully healing many and saving the lives of some.
