Having graduated from the Courtauld Institute of Art in 1994 Stuart joined Daniel Katz at his first gallery in Jermyn Street. During the following 23 years he worked alongside Danny Katz handling some of the greatest European Sculpture to come to the market, enriching the collections of the most distinguished collectors and museums.
Stuart has curated a multitude of exhibitions in London and New York for the gallery. He worked alongside the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam on loan shows of their collections of Renaissance and Baroque bronzes hosted by the gallery and supervised the accompanying catalogues. He was instrumental in creating London Sculpture Week, a commercial gallery initiative now a part of London Art Week. He was a trustee of the Public Sculpture and Monuments Association for 10 years and sat on the Editorial Board of the Sculpture Journal. He was Chair of the Courtauld Association for 7 years and he is now Ambassador for the Samuel Courtauld Society. The Courtauld is an institution he is a passionate supporter of.
Over the last decade she has conducted research and written catalogues for Daniel Katz. In parallel, a lifelong passion for Japan has led her to write "The Art Lover's Guide to Japanese Museums", for which she received an award from the Japanese government in 2015. When she is not researching for Stuart Lochhead Sculpture, she consults on a variety of cultural projects in Japan.
