Stanley is a Scottish artist based in Edinburgh who had a career in law for 25 years but has now returned to painting. He is self taught but for several years he has been attending classes at the Glasgow School of Art and recently at Maryhill Art School.
Stanley works mainly in acrylics and mixed media on board and on canvas – but will use whatever he needs to make sure he captures that elusive image. Some of his work has incorporated paper, wood and textile collage as well as paint. His work ranges from colourful, semi-abstract landscapes to larger-scale representational paintings and portraits of animals both in monochrome and colour. Stanley exhibits and sells his paintings through a number of galleries in and around Scotland. He has also exhibited and sold work at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts (RGI).
