Stuart was born in 1961 on the island of Malta, moving to Yorkshire in England aged
2 where he has resided ever since. Having an early passion for horse racing, stemming
from the fact that he used to spend his school dinner money betting on the horses.
Also having a deep interest in art it was inevitable that he would combine the the
two and use racing as the main subject matter for his paintings.
He paints in a realistic detailed style, using thin layers of paint and transparent
glazes to achieve a depth and glow to the finished work, that he believes can only
be achieved 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.
