Stuart Anderson studied at Winchester School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He works in clay or wax and casts his own bronzes using the lost wax process.

He built a studio and foundry in his parents back yard whilst at university, he and group of artists set up shared studios in Butley, Suffolk in 2003.

In his work he aims to convey the vitality of the living body (animal or human) in strong sculptural forms.

In addition to studies of animals and the human figure, He has always explored, in a more subjective way, the idea of the horse , and uses the clay in a freer way, with broken outlines and echoing forms, to create a visual energy and elemental aspect.
The horse can act as a metaphor for the forces of nature, in all its power and beauty, but also in its vulnerability and ambivalent relationship with humans.
