The Norfolk coast dominates Stuart Roy's paintings. Since moving to the county, he has fallen in love with the areas majestic landscapes and seascapes. Spectacular skies and dramatic seas feature heavily in his work, and his principal goal is to recreate and reflect the atmosphere of a scene rather than make a direct visual copy. Stuart has been an artist all his life studying fine art at the University of Wales where his interest extended from drawing to photography. After graduating, alongside selling his fine art photography he worked as a professional freelance advertising photographer until moving to Norfolk completely shifted the direction of his artwork. The vast, open spaces and breathtaking lighting of Norfolk re-ignited his passion for painting, and he started to create with acrylics on canvas; the familiar signature of his portfolio today.
