Stewart Michael Bruce Digital
Stewart Michael Bruce: Illustrator and Photographer. Stewart uses traditional artists' mediums but also uses a computer to combine them with images taken from found objects and his own photographs. then combined with traditional tools including watercolours, acrylics, oils, charcoal, and pencils into his artwork. All work is printed onto canvas giclee. Stewart finds working as an artist on the computer with tools like Adobe Photoshop software has made all the difference to him as an artist, setting him free from the restrictions of the old media, while allowing him to combine the old with the new. Now he feels that his paintings have a great deal more shape and form, through the palette of millions of colours. Stewart's purpose is to create new landscapes that flow with movement and colour.
Education Stewart Studied Art and Design at Great Yarmouth College and then went on to do a degree at the University of Norwich School of Art and Design. Stewart completed his BA degree in Illustration at Norwich School of Art and Design. His intensive university training gave Stewart excellent groundwork as an Illustrator.
