Biography
Born in San Antonio, Texas in 1965, Scott Harding’s passion
for art began at an early age. He spent much of his time
drawing, and his need to draw continued through his school
years - often getting him in trouble when his teachers caught
him sketching in class. After receiving his Bachelor of Fine
Arts degree through the Honors Painting Program at Indiana
University, Bloomington in 1989, Harding moved to Chicago
and began a professional career in illustration.

In 1993, Harding began his own business in graphic arts.
Egads!, Inc. has since enjoyed tremendous success, giving
him the time and freedom to exclusively pursue his fine art
work.

To date, Harding’s work has been exhibited in numerous
galleries and highlighted in many shows including several one-
man shows. In 2003 he entered his first national and
international competitions and his works have since won
several awards including, “Best of Show,” at the Oil Painters of
American Midwest Regional Show in 2003 and the “Nichols
Taos Fine Art Gallery Award” at the American Impressionist
Society’s National Show in 2005. His work hangs in private
and corporate collections across America.

Harding is fascinated with the effects of light on the world
around us and marvels that a moment in time, captured by
color and composition, can strike an emotional chord. His
paintings reflect a wide range of subject matter, and his style
is realistic, with an impressionistic touch. Harding’s medium of
choice is oil; his works also include pencil, charcoal,
watercolor, pastel and intaglio painting.

Each day Harding seizes the challenge of capturing his view of
the world on canvas – a timeless reminder of his passion for
life.
Scott Harding was featured in the May 2006 issue of American Art Collector
Magazine. The article discusses his inspiration and drive to capture a moment in
time on canvas.

“The truth of the moment is what I'm after," says Harding. "I want people to
recognize that my draftsmanship is good and that I'm humble about my work. I
hope it hits a chord with my collectors and allows them to feel what i"m feeling
when I created the painting in he first place. To see the grace of the figure or the
moment the painting captures.”
