Scott Wakefield, MFA

Associate Professor, Chair of Illustration

Scott Wakefield has worked as a freelance illustrator in children’s book illustration, serving national publishers such as Harper Collins, Sterling Publishing, Scholastic, and McGraw Hill. Scott is currently represented at the national level by Shannon & Associates. His portfolio can also be found at www.scottjwakefield.com. Although versatile with nearly any medium, much of Scott’s work is done in traditional media such as oil paint, ink, pastels, and acrylic, bringing richness and nostalgia to his unique style. Scott’s work demonstrates engaging characters, effective storytelling, and a strong sense of life and light. At home, Scott and his wife, Kori, enjoy the unique personalities of their five children, serving in their church, and family activities such as sidewalk chalk art and rock climbing.
