Stuart Herd is inspired by the varied and dramatically changing landscape of his country.
He was born in Scotland in 1971, and after growing up in England and briefly attending Amersham College of Art he started a career in photography whilst regularly travelling north to Scotland to explore and capture the landscapes.
In 2002 he returned to Scotland and his painting took precedence. He started exhibiting in galleries while working as a picture framer, but within a few years he was working full time on his paintings.
In 2011 Stuart had a major accident, and is now blind in one eye. However, he was straight back in the studio when he was allowed and now he is back producing the same amount of detailed work he was prior ’the accident’.
