Painter and pensman, illustrator and
designer with over 30 years of experience in the arts, my creative explorations

Raised in Charlotte, Scott Cunningham
attended both Brevard College and the University of North Carolina. Following
graduation, he spent the better part of a year living in Switzerland. An
award-winning artist, he put his fine art production on the back burner while
pursuing a commercial arts career and a deep involvement in arts advocacy.
Now art is flowing out of his studio at WMAC, providing imagery that populates
his new fine art website.
1999 to the present, Cunningham has owned and operated several websites
advocating historical and cultural endeavors supporting the community of
artists in upstate South Carolina and western North Carolina, the most
prominent being The Artist Index.
