At the age of 12, Stuart wrote his first composition. Since then, he has written and recorded with several bands as a guitarist and singer and continues to write today. He is currently working on both the script and sound score for an original screenplay.
In this video, he shares his perspective on the real work of an artist. In Stuart's view, it's more about meditation than technique. In his own words, "The kind of art that moves us deep down, the kind that pushes us to grow in ways we may not even understand, must come from the 'deep down' of the artist as opposed to the artists beliefs or a desire to fit a demographic. Unfortunately, this is not common.".
