I come from a family of practicing artists and designers so it was inevitable, with the smell of oil paint around the house, that I would follow suit. I attended art college after leaving school and went on to earning a living as a two dimensional industrial designer. I also designed exhibitions and for many years I was employed as a museum professional rising to Project Manager for Birmingham Museum and Art gallery. I have always painted and taken photographs. Photography came into my armoury of skills when I was still at art college. To pay for the expensive equipment that photography entails I sold photographs and stories to magazines and newspapers. Many of my paintings are based on photographs that I have taken over the years, providing either a starting point or a complete composition to be re-interpreted into paint. However the practice of simple good drawing I consider essential and I spend a lot of time with a sketch book in life drawing sessions and just pure doodling. For me the joy of painting comes from another human being saying that they like my work so much that they want to hang it on their wall. That to me is the greatest satisfaction that I can have from my paintings. I have exhibited over the years at: The Harris Brush Factory, Bromsgrove, the Birmingham Open and at the Malvern Theatres, Malvern for artgallery.co.uk. After many years of painting and at the behest of friends and family I finally started selling my paintings in 2009. I fully devote my time now to painting and consider myself blessed, not cursed that I have this talent to please other people as well as myself. I don’t subscribe to the practice of having just one style and I am constantly trying to change my methods of working to reflect that. I am always open to commission suggestions provided they are passed through artgallery.co.uk.

I love this painting of a girl laughing behind her hand. I had to snap it up before someone else did. I would like to purchase more if Stuart Dalby's work. He is very versatile.

Bought this picture because of its warm glow of stunning colour, put this in our dining room so we walk towards it as we pass through the house giving the effect of walking on that path, lovely picture
