An example of fine art by Jean Stanley

I have been interested in drawing and painting since my earliest memories.  When I was a teen I wanted to be a fashion designer.  After maturing, marrying, and having a family, my prime interest became painting in oils.   We had a fiberglass business in the material's early infancy.  I became the art director-consultant.  We did such things as decorative and structural items for the Alaska Ferry System; Seattle World's Fair; a 35 foot Santa Claus for Seattle, Idaho, and Alaska; dinosaurs for the Pacific Science Center; and two custom 48 foot sailboats; and numerous other items for homes, offices and business.
My paintings are in private collections in Washington, California, Oregon and Hawaii.  I have completed several commissioned paintings also.  I have had exhibits in several Washington cities and colleges.
 I was blessed to have an uncle who was an artist.  He made his living as a commercial artist but was a fine artist as well.  He taught me as I was growing up.  And alternately, I studied art during school and college.  I have been influenced by artists such as Richard Schmidt, John Howard Sanden, Robert Bateman, Greg Beecham and Pino to name a few.  Every artist I admire becomes an influence.  And I continue the quest to grow and improve.  It's just never finished!
For the past ten years I have been displaying my art in local establishments, city halls of neighboring cities, colleges and churches and have concentrated on private sales and commissions.  After creating my website through FASO, I have a wider coverage and have started entering their competitions.  I am pleased that my "Trillium" was selected as part of the FAV15% in December 2014.
