Richard Stanley
Biography
"As long as I can remember I have sketched or painted something,
somewhere. Whatever artistic qualities I possess influenced my
education and the years that followed, creating opportunities in the
fields of drafting, graphics and industrial design. By combining this
experience with my personal interest in our natural world, I was
inspired to create a series of images illustrating concerns for the
future of our planet’s wildlife.  Those early watercolours gave me a
voice and allowed me to enter the world of fine art, shaping what has
become a lifetime of study, travel and creativity ...'' RVS
Canadian, Richard Stanley, was born in London, England and resides just
north of Toronto, Ontario. The great North American landscape, across
which he has travelled many times, creates the inspiration for his paintings
and sculptures that reflect the scope of our natural heritage. In some
instances these images reflect the artist's concern for the necessity of
conservation and environmental stewardship. Having travelled to many
areas around the globe, his work now includes a variety of subject matter
that ranges from murals to miniatures and can be found in private and
corporate collections internationally.
Richard's art is on display, physically or digitally, in many North American
locations including Toronto, New York, Florida and Los Angeles and 2018
marked his first exhibit in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
Publications including his work:  'Art of Survival' (Canada), 'The Best
International Modern Contemporary Artists' (Italy), 'A Survey of
Contemporary Art" (USA), 'Canadian Geographic Magazine', and
