This biography from the Archives of AskART:
In the "Guinness Book of Records" as one of the most reproduced artists in America, Jane Wooster Scott began copying work by folk artists such as Grandma Moses and gradually evolved into her own style. A turning point for her career was a joint showing at the Ankrum Gallery in Los Angeles with her comedian friend, Jonathan Winters. It was mostly a business crowd, and she sold 40 paintings in an hour.

Scott grew up in the Philadelphia area and moved West following her dream to be a movie star. She quickly learned that goal was not for her, but became the host of a talk show where she interviewed movie stars. Then she married and quit that work, becoming a full-time mother.

Currently (2002) she resides in homes in Los Angeles and Sun Valley, Idaho, and creates images for limited edition prints published through her own business. Her work appears on Christmas cards, calendars, puzzles, plates and more and even the state lottery printed one of her Christmas scenes on their holiday tickets.

Of her life and work, she says: "I'm a very happy person, and I think it shows in my work. One thing everyone said to me without fail is that 'whenever I look at your work it makes me happy.' And that's good; we have enough stressful things in the world. We don't need it hanging on our walls."
