Stuart was born in 1961 on the island of Malta. Moving to Yorkshire in England at the age of 2, where he has resided ever since. Developing a keen interest in art and wildlife, and also a passion for horse racing during his school years.He has combined these interests and now uses horse racing and animals as his main subject matter.

     He paints in a realistic detailed style, using thin layers of paint and transparent glazes to attain depth and luminosity, that he believes can only be acheived by using oils. Consequently each painting can take weeks sometimes months to complete. Using only the best quality linen canvas and artists grade oil paints

     Stuart accepts commissions for horse portraits, dog portraits or horse racing scenes.
