At age 11, Stock suffered a crippling accident. He was later encouraged by a doctor to take up painting. He studied briefly with Francis White, a pupil of Chester Harding, but he was mainly self-taught. He began his career by copying paintings of historical heroes, but soon switched to portraits, some painted as a memorials for a grieving family after the death of a child.
