Stuart Brown was formally trained in illustration before joining a busy commercial design studio producing llustrations for a wide variety of brochures, advertisements and exhibitions.
Working full-time with other traditionally skilled artists and designers proved valuable experience. A series of major clients, including agencies of the UK MoD, provided a continuous flow of involved and challenging projects over a period of some 15 years.
This work tied in well with a passion for military subjects and a series of commissioned oil paintings of military and aviation subjects inevitably sparked a new direction for his work. Today, limited edition prints of Stuart Brown's work are collected worldwide with original paintings in the collections of UK and overseas armed forces.
With a continued passion for aviation, Stuart is a keen competition skydiver with over 1000 jumps.
