Robert Stuart BA MSc

Robert is an emerging artist with a preference for the human figure, but who can turn his hand to other genres.  He has sold a number of pieces to private individuals, including several commissions.

Robert is classed as ‘self-taught artist’, a term that does no justice to the people who have taught and guided his learning.

Prior to becoming a professional artist, Robert was a software developer.
