Stuart Sims

Stuart has realism conquered. He works in oils and presents very detailed and real work. He prefers slightly off-beat subject matter that tends toward the Pop Art end of the spectrum (but not quite). His background is in teaching art and he works as a draughtsman. Stuart's two passions are photography and painting and he uses the former to develop the detail and finesse in his art.
