Scott A. Stoll is a self taught artist born and raised in the sleepy town of Reed City, Michigan and during his teenage years developed a deep passion for science fiction, horror and Halloween. After graduating from Ferris State University with a bachelor’s degree in Television Production he continued his love for the genres and started to play with papier mache as a means to create his own visions of all things fantastical.
In 1992 Scott started working with papier mache as a means to decorate his house for Halloween, the medium proved addicting and decades later Stoll still finds great joy in finding new ways to create with paper and paste.
Today Stoll is an award winning papier mache artist specializing in Halloween related subject matter and continues to push the boundaries of the papier mache medium. His work is typically characterized by the use of recycled and commonly found materials and has been featured in The Midland Daily News, Great Lakes Bay Region Lifestyle Magazine and on The Home Depot blog.
In April 2013 Scott opened STOLLOWEEN Studio at 718 George Street in Midland Michigan. The studio serves as his personal workshop and a classroom for those interested in learning a variety of papier mache techniques.
In addition to classroom based workshops Scott also offers online workshops in the form of comprehensive videos to students around the globe.
This year Scott will be changing the focus of the studio a bit as he concentrates more on developing online workshop videos and creating a new collection that will be available for sale during the 2019 season.
Scott lives in Midland, Michigan with his wife, two sons, two cats and one spoiled dog. When not working he still enjoys watching a good science fiction, fantasy or horror movie.
