Scott Fulton grew up in Ridgecrest , California surrounded by the beautiful Mojave desert. He was introduced to his Kaigani Haida heritage through his Grandfather Gilbert McLeod  a commercial fisherman in Alaska. Gilbert told many stories, myths and legends of the Haida's. Many of the stories included the Raven and Eagle which are the moieties of the Kiagani Haida tribe. Scott's Haida grandmother was Nettie Nix and great grandparents were Frank and Mini Nix (Eagle moitey/ Frog clan) of Hydaburg, Alaska.

After moving to San Francisco, Debora Iyall of American Indian Contemporary Arts instructed Scott in the art of print making. Debora's positive attitude, motivation and love of art, assisted Scott with his first shows. Most images still carry the Northwest Coast symbolism, with a unique contemporary style. The art continues to evolve just as every thing does in nature. His Haida art form is stretched, colored and contoured through imagination. Scott has a varied interest in images, colors and designs. This site has a blend of works he has created.

IMAGES OF THE NORTH Gallery in San Francisco, California has represented his work over the years. Scott has been involved in local and regional exhibits. Some enthusiastic supporters  of northwest coast native art continue to add his work to their private collections. Four of his prints have been acquired by the SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTE, National Museum of the American Indian for their permanent collection. The prints are on display in New York, George Gustav Heye Center, Infinity of Nations: Art and History in the Collections of the National Museum of the American Indian until October 25th 2020.

Scott is a delegate to the Tlingit and Haida Central Council of Alaska, board member and past president of the San Francisco Tlingit and Haida Community Council. He has served as a committee chair, San Francisco Tlingit and Haida culture celebration for 10 years.
