Stuart Mallard - Profile
The knowledge gained from breeding and exhibiting dogs was later put to good use as an international judge and could be drawn upon to understand the anatomy of his many subjects as his prowess as an artist expanded. Extensive judging trips have also given him the opportunity to study not only wildlife in its natural habitat but also appreciate the nuances of colour and textures that surround us as we travel through the far flung corners of the world.
Interest in his early career by an observant teacher encouraged him to pursue a career in art at the West Sussex College of Art (later to become part of the Sussex University). Positions in well known multi-national companies followed and culminated in his being head hunted by the well known Saatchi & Saatchi organisation.
His preferred medium is oils but many of the subjects he undertakes also lend themselves to pastels and watercolour, media in which he is also very proficient.
Nowadays he considers himself very fortunate that he is very much in demand to work on commissions not only of top winning show dogs but also his deep love of wildlife. His work is avidly collected by enthusiasts around the world. As he travels around his attention is frequently drawn, not only to local wildlife, but the natural landscapes and beautiful buildings that are nestled amongst them. He tries very hard to make time to paint for himself thus keeping his interest alive and these works are regularly on view at his annual exhibition. Other recent exhibitions have included an invitation to feature some of his work at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation gallery in Surrey.
