WESTPORT WINDRIDERS KITE FESTIVAL
JULY 13, 14, & 15, 2012
ON THE BEACH IN
FEATURED GUEST KITE ARTIST
SCOTT HAMPTON FROM SANDY, UTAH
Scott has been providing the kite world with his art for many years. His banners and kites are distinctive with their bright colors and original graphics. He has become an expert in the use of Design Master Paints on ripstop nylon that allows him to make full use of color gradients. He is always willing to share his techniques with others. When traveling abroad to festivals he is fully committed to his presentation of displays and always ready to answer questions about his kites.
In Scott's own words:
"I make stuff to satisfy my inner desire to... make stuff. For the past 20+ years it's been banners and kites ( some of which actually fly). I always enjoy what I make and sometimes I'm very pleased with the outcome (that's why I don't sell very much, I get attached to it). It's all about building what's aesthetically pleasing to me (of course I have no formal art training). I enjoy the drawing, designing, painting, and appliquéing aspect of my work. The sparring and bridling part is not my favorite but realize those are necessities in order to bring the idea to life."
