The following information was submitted in April of 2006 by the artist:
Christopher Sean Stuart was born in Landstuhl, Germany in 1974. His father, Irvin, now retired from the Air Force was stationed all over the world, which gave Chris the good fortune of traveling as a young child. With camera in tow, Irvin and Chris would discover the beauty of each place. An inspiration that later developed into a love of traveling and painting for Chris. His mother, Sol, used to paint in oils. This sparked an immediate interest in Chris, and after dabbling in acrylics he soon switched to oils.
Chris met his current wife, Rachel in 1997 and together they have traveled to England, Italy, and Maine. Both find traveling fascinating and hope to see as many places as possible. In 2001, Chris and Rachel moved to Columbia, South Carolina where Chris first started teaching group workshops, and then private instruction. Missing the heartland, they moved back to Indiana in the fall of 2003 where they purchased a house in the historic district of Noblesville.
