Scrum utilisation from artistic backgrounds and perspectives

Hello hope everyone is well

Just wanted to ask some questions before applying to some jobs if the scrum community can help I would be grateful...

a little about myself,
I was a bit of a child prodigy in art before i hit my teens, later on I studied art and design and developed a large portfolio working on various media formats. I branched out into my own creative media agency where I was in charge of numerous projects. This was before I knew anything about scrum or even knew it existed all the time adhering to my own framework I created and abided by. In fact as canny as this sounds I believe that past masters such as Christopher Wren, Michaelengelo and Leonardo Da Vinci and many others used a similar framework studying their works. 

So i guess my main questions are the following:
1. Has anyone else experienced this- working and abiding to your own framework and principles only to later realise that you have been following scrum for a long time?
2. In a working environment can scrum and certain positions in scrum be more utilised by certain individuals that adhere to skill sets such as artistic prominence vs business dominance bg?
3. And taking all this into consideration will a product owner role be best suited to me?
4. Also how best to express this in my cv and interview should that arise?

Sure. Make sure to ask anyone comming from traditional project management ;)

2. In a working environment can scrum and certain positions in scrum be more utilised by certain individuals that adhere to skill sets such as artistic prominence vs business dominance bg?

Turn this around: if you know wat skills are needed to perform a specific role within a Scrum team, like coaching skills are for a Scrum Master, would it not be logical that the people having a role to skills and skill sets? Regardless of the environment Scrum is implemented in?

3. And taking all this into consideration will a product owner role be best suited to me?

There are way too many personal factors to answer that for you. What do you think about this yourself?

4. Also how best to express this in my cv and interview should that arise?

Why not simply tell your personal life story and vision as above?
