Scott MacLeod was born in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. His family moved to Montreal from Cape Breton N.S. in 1969, where he was educated in French and English, fully integrating into the French culture of Quebec. Scott is a multimedia artist in the truest sense of the term.

Based in Montreal, he holds a BFA and MA from Concordia University. Scott has received numerous scholarships, grants, and awards for his multidisciplinary work.

He currently produces educational animations, films, and web platforms with MacLeod Nine Productions as teaching tools for schools, libraries, and the public.  He has produced and directed eleven film collaborations with the National Film Board of Canada.

Scott is a critically acclaimed painter and photographer whose work is held in many corporate and private collections, including that of the National Gallery of Canada.

He is a storyteller, and also a performing songwriter and recording artist. He has had over 200 exhibitions and performances nationally and internationally and his art, music, and film work reflects social, political, and historical themes with an aim to promote education and accessibility to art and culture.

In Scott’s own words: “I have tried to define myself in my work through my personal “myth” or what Joseph Campbell refers to as “following one’s bliss”. This is a metaphor for pursuing one’s life path through the labyrinth, which for me has been a journey via my learning, art, and teaching practices. This journey has given me the courage to live, it has made me humble, it has fed and sheltered me, given me a voice, and enabled me to do the same for others, through teaching, outreach, and fund-raisers. As a result of this work, I have better-understood humanity’s place on this planet and have tried to be a positive influence for political and social change.”
