Stuart Roy

Sponsor: 1. Butcher Andrews Solicitors
Sculpture Name: 1. Butch

Stuart studied fine art whilst at university in Wales and exhibited his work across the country. He started to use photographs for the basis of his paintings and quickly became involved in photography on a professional level.

As well as selling fine art photography, he worked in the West Midlands as a freelance advertising photographer, taking product and PR shots for brochures and various publications.

When he settled in Norfolk the move re-ignited his interest in painting-the pace of life is so different it is not surprising that this is reflected in Stuart’s work. 

Although big skies, wide sands and the unique lighting of the Norfolk coast may seem descriptive clichés at times, it is this and the very landscapes of the area that inspire Stuart in many of his paintings.

As an artist he is constantly developing his personal style and exploring new ways of creating work to capture the atmosphere and colour of a seascape. 

Stuart participates in Norfolk Open Studios and has had work accepted for the 2012 Royal Norfolk Show.

He is always keen to take on new challenges and recently took part in the ‘Horse About Newmarket’ initiative for which he painted a full size horse that was displayed in Newmarket over the summer and was then sold for charity.

Artist Statement

Previously I was a painter that attempted to produce almost photographic images. Now I am concentrating on colours and the way in which they work together to capture the feel of a view .

I work in acrylics and like to work on large canvas’s that allow you to use the paint in thick layers. I take elements of the landscapes around me and put them together to capture the atmosphere of the scene rather than making a direct copy.

I love to paint Norfolk skies and a larger canvas allows me to capture the drama of East Anglia.
