Scott began his career in art not with his painting, but by buying a failing gallery at nineteen with money he saved from working odd jobs. At twenty-one, Scott opened Reflections On Canvas Gallery in Westfield, N.J., a gallery that met with much success.
After receiving a set of paints from his wife for Christmas, Scott turned back to creating and now has a body of work to attest to the wisdom of that decision. Scott began by painting people. He has captured the likeness of celebrities in commissioned portraits such as business tycoon Malcom Forbes, supermodels Kim Alexis and Kathy Ireland. On the suggestion of a friend, Scott merged his love of motorcycles with his artistic talent and became the first officially licensed Harley-Davidson artist painting the images that continue to amaze Harley-Davidson enthusiasts worldwide.
Scott’s motorcycle work has been featured in VQ Magazine, American Iron, Art Business News, Easy Rider Magazine, Airbrush Action Magazine and more. Jacobs is one of today's most sought after artists selling throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. His work is collected by celebrities such as Peter Fonda, Lorenzo Lamas, Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, John Elway, and Karl Malone of the Lakers.
