Some words from Stuart
Every day, my creative practice affords me the luxury and privilege of learning. In pursuing new ideas, my job asks me to blend sensory awareness and intellectual curiosity. As an artist and problem solver, I embrace paradox. I cherish how art can enhance clarity, vision and understanding of our subjectivity...can uncover how love and loss infiltrate our bodies...can take us deep within to personal healing and daily health.
