Speyside sculptor, Stuart Murdoch is based in Ballindalloch, Banffshire.
Born in Aberdeen, his family hails from Tarland, Aboyne and along Royal Deeside.
Stuart travelled extensively throughout his life, mainly due to his father serving in the Gordon Highlanders, eventually settling in Surrey.
After 19 years as a graphic designer, Stuart gave up the world of corporate marketing to establish himself as a professional sculptor and came back to his roots in 2009, the year of “Homecoming Scotland”.
His sculptures, large and small, cover a wide range of subjects and styles and include Celtic, Pictish and other decorative designs of figurative, abstract and nature subjects for the home, garden and corporate markets in wood, stone and slate. Wherever possible Stuart uses traditional methods and reclaimed, windblown or found materials to produce unique carvings and sculptures in wood, stone and slate for the home, garden, workplace and public space.
The landscapes and wildlife of the Highlands and Scottish heritage, Pictish and Celtic knotwork patterns and zoomorphics are obvious elements of
inspiration in Stuart’s work.
