About Scotty Ziegler
Scotty is a master designer and inventor, dedicated to the building of all things cool. When it comes to creation, Scotty doesn’t know how to think inside of the box.
Scotty Ziegler is a renaissance man in all aspects of the word. He grew up building cars and painting for teachers to get out of homework assignments. Although some would say that this was a disservice to his education, time would prove that his unconventional upbringing created the genius that thrives today.
Starting at a very young age, it became abundantly clear that Scotty would never subscribe to “normal.” He quickly adopted the “if you’ve got it, I don’t want it” mentality and thus resulted in his world of custom cars, motorcycles and fine art. Scotty worked as an artist in his parent’s screen printing business, freelanced architectural drawings and airbrush photo retouching (for real, before the world of Photoshop) in his spare time.

When he got married, he and his wife Angie started their business together and Scotty became a full-time toy inventor. He used his self-taught knowledge of engineering and design to bring fresh concepts to the toy industry, although his creations often ran about 10 years ahead of their time. With inventions like the dripless sipper cup to his name, he continues to thrive in this creative arena for more than 30 years.
Fine Art by Scotty
As the economy went into a recession, the toy market became less lucrative as manufactures struggled to remain profitable which reduced their demand for outside inventors. Scotty always said he wanted to paint by the beach when he retired, so his wife encouraged him to not wait and start doing it now. When he asked her, what should he paint, she simply replied…women. He quickly began diving into the world of fine art, all the while continuing to invent innovative products.
With his vastly different outlook on life, Scotty creates things that do more than look pretty on a wall. They embody the spirit of cool, and they draw people into his world. They immediately invoke an emotion and the beauty of each piece is undeniable. To own Scotty’s art is to look at the world through his crazy, sexy and vibrant lens.
