GEORGE EDWARD STUTTARD
"My creative process is very reactive. I like to respond to what I am experiencing in my life at the time, whether that be good or bad. This leads to a lot of experimentation, as the best way to visualise something isn’t always clear to begin with."
At a young age I taught myself to oil paint, from there I experimented with landscapes and still life well into my teens but as I began a career in commercial interiors, painting took a back seat. That was until the sudden death of my mother in 2019.
To try and rationalise what had happened I began to sketch. My focus shifted from what I could see in front of me to what I could not see at all. This is where my career as an Artist truly began.
Since, I have explored the idea of visualising feelings and experiences then transferring this onto canvas in a way that makes sense to me.
My ever-evolving style has been partly influenced by my design background but it is also formed by constant experimentation with materials and techniques.
