The Artist: Scott Benner’s portfolio encompasses over 40 years of practice, patience and perseverance. After being diagnosed with Horner’s syndrome, a series of events left Scott without a home and without a job. He found solace in his art and saw that others were also touched by his work. Scott’s body of work is the result of thousands of hours and dedication, with some pieces taking upwards of 1,000 hours or more. Through ArtLifting, Scott has been able to secure housing and continues to be dedicated to his art—“I shouldn’t be doing it to try to sell pictures. I should be doing what inspires me. That’s where the real roots are.”
