2020 Monuments & Canyons Artist: Scott Ruthven


Born and raised in Colorado, Scott Ruthven has spent his life drawing inspiration from our magnificent landscape. His dedication to painting out-of-doors, year-round shows through in the genuine sense of place you feel when viewing his work. “I strive, not just to paint the likeness of a tree or a believable snow-bank, but to create paintings that are a visual treat, paintings you want to explore and in which, you can almost hear the gurgling stream and feel the warm sunshine on your face - an experience to enjoy over and over again.”

Scott is a CSU Alumni and lives in Fort Collins, Colorado.
