Born and raised on the family farm in Ontario Canada, Stewart’s interest in nature was stimulated by the surrounding of trees, lakes and wildlife. During his school years, he started to learn drawing but later abandoned art at twenty one years old to concentrate on his career as an IT Marketing Executive.
For the next thirty five years, he rarely picked up a paint brush. It was only on his arrival in Kuala Lumpur in 1989, Stewart’s desire to paint was rekindled and he started painting again in 1990. Stewart said Malaysia’s various shades of green stimulated his painting desire. In fact, his interest in local water colour art encouraged him to have his company support local artists with art exhibitions.
Nature aside, Stewart is also inspired by the beauty in old abandoned farm buildings. He sees a story in every site, which for him, is a stimulus to paint and record the history.
