Stuart McIntyre was born in 1969 in Buckinghamshire where he still lives. He studied art and design at Amersham College before going on to Dunstable to study graphic design. His favourite subjects for drawing and painting are North American natives and motorsport. The latter has afforded him considerable success with a series of tributes to great Formula 1 drivers published as fine art prints. His graphic style and eye for detail combined with his pencil portrait skill, make his images appeal to a wide variety of collectors. His interests vary from wildlife to acoustic guitar, Formula 1 to mountain biking and the latter two once led him to cycle through France and over the Pyrenees to the Spanish Grand Prix! Stuart received a nomination by the Fine Art Trade Guild, in both 1997 and 1998 for the award of Best Selling New Artist.
