Scott Jacobs

Scott Jacobs has made a home in South Dakota as an artist and as a community leader. He was the first official licensed Harley Davidson artist and now holds licenses through organizations such as Chevrolet and Mattel Hot Wheels.

He and his wife, Sharon, launched Scott Jacobs Studio (a publishing company) in 2004. They moved to Deadwood in 2016 and opened Jacobs Gallery.

He's a household name in photorealism and his artwork has become a family affair and a Black Hills treasure.
