Having relished my early career as an arts critic and then an arts publicist, when I started my own PR consultancy in 2007 my list of dream clients included creative types. Enter Scott Petrie. A financially successful and humble visual artist whose bold and ever-evolving paintings adorn the walls of scores of luxury houses in Asia, the US and Australia. He is a real pleasure to work with and a purely creative talent whose art work usually speaks for itself. But here, for a change, we get to hear from Scott the man too.
