She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and an Masters of Fine Arts from the Instituto Allende in Mexico. She is also influenced by craft traditions in her extended family of "quilters, woodworkers, basketweavers, chair caners, planters and blacksmiths", where people developed skills in more than one craft so that they could survive. Scott's works are held by the Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, St. Louis, Missouri, the Mint Museum of Art, North Carolina, the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas, and the Smithsonian.
