Stuart is a self-taught painter who works primarily in acrylics, but also uses watercolors, oils, or anything else he can get his hands on. His mother says that he was born with a crayon in his hand, which he immediately stuck up his nose! So she replaced it with a paint brush. which was much easier to pull out! He was always greatly influenced by artists from the 40's and 50's, preferring surrealism, but not sticking to any one style. Depending on the mood he is in, he may be found working on a landscape, an abstract or a Japanese painting at the same time, moving from one to the other depending on his mood. No matter what he is working on there are always hidden images in his work. Like an angel in the clouds or a lady in the tree line, and yes, there is a black cat in every one. Her name is Dicie.
