This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Darrell Loy Scott is best known for his 'folk' paintings. Often they are stylized figurative acrylics on hardboard depicting the rural gentility of African-Americans in the South. Scott was born in Oklahoma, but grew up in northern California where he studied briefly at the College of the Sequoias. His studies were interrupted in the mid-sixties when he enlisted in 1968 to serve in the Air Force in Laos and Thailand during the Vietnam conflict. Following his discharge from military service, he moved to Kentucky, Tennessee, and Puerto Rico. He finally settled in Louisiana, where he worked as a carpenter for thirty years.

An intuitive painter, Darrell brings his life experiences and travels to his artwork. He uses his experience in carpentry to build his own cedar frames as well as the wooden surfaces for his acrylic paintings. A student of art history, his interest in aboriginal art is reflected in his use of bright colors, high contrast, and semi-pointillism in his paintings and graphics.

He began drawing landscapes in the 1950s, Death Valley and Sequoia National Park were two of his first subjects, and went on to experiment with various art forms. His three most notable mediums are pen and ink, watercolor, and acrylic paintings. His older works of oils on canvas show his true love of the landscape. Most recently, he has created computer-designed and printed graphics of florals, figures, and landscapes. Scott's earlier paintings were signed 'D. Scott', but in more recent work he began adding his middle name, Loy.

Scott lives in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he works full-time at his art. He has exhibited at galleries in Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Tennessee. His art was included in the show 'Outsider Art' at Art Access Gallery, Columbus, Ohio, featuring Southern untrained artists, along with Woodie Long, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, Bernice Sims, and Michael Banks.
