At age nine, Scott Jones' grandmother taught him to sew on a singer 27K Sphinx model. The sewing machine belonged to his great grandmother and was originally a treadle machine. Scott's grandmother had the "electric kit" put on the machine in the 1930s. It was a beautiful mysterious machine. This began his love of all things vintage and an appreciation for fine craft.

Scott discovered the art of Andy Warhol a decade later and learned how to screen print. He began printing his own original images onto muslin. Once he began combining his prints with vintage textile, he found his voice as an artist.

The images Scott works with are an eclectic array, yet cohesive as a collection. The vintage mid century barkcloth he pairs with his images is the commonality in his designs.
