Stuart Herd is inspired by the varied and dramatically changing landscape of his country – Scotland.
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 in the South East whilst regularly travelling north to Scotland to explore and capture the landscapes.
Looking for a new direction, in 2002 he again returned to Scotland and his painting took precedence. He started exhibiting in Argyll galleries while working as a Picture Framer, but within a few years he was working full time on his paintings. He now exhibits his work all across Scotland.
