b. Miami, FL ,1998
Tori Scott is a multidisciplinary artist based in Miami, Florida. She received her BFA from Florida International University with a focus in Studio art and a Minor in Art History in 2020. Upon graduating, Scott was the recipient of the Betty Lard Perry Award for her work "Etherline Kendrick," which was also featured in an article with the Miami Herald.
In 2021, Scott participated in an Art education and social Impact residency with Project Art-Miami, where she taught young and eager students the essentials of art history and mixed media art. As of 2023, Scott has presented work in two group exhibitions, "an Elegy to Rosewood," commemorating the 100th year since the tragic massacre at the Frost Art Museum, and the G-Ma, Mama, and Nana exhibition in honor of Women's History Month at the FIU MBUS gallery.
Scott's work takes on the form of storytelling and highlights the black experience and existence. These pieces represent communal expression while also preserving memories. Much of her work starts with a photographic process, whether it is capturing her subjects or reimagining existing images. Through these archives, she then explores mediums such as painting, digital photography, and installations.
