Stanley's six decades of artistic experience began her studies with
Arthur Maynard at Ridgewood Art Institute in New Jersey. Although not
well know he is considered a master, a protégée of Frank
Vincent DuMonde, in turn a protégée of Winslow Homer.
Subsequently she studied with other preeminent artists including Everett
Raymond Kinstler, William Scott Jennings, David Leffel, Ken Auster,
Mary Beth McKenzie and Wolf Kahn. Her exposure to the training led her
to paint dramatic lights and shadows, much like the work of Edward Hopper.
This has led to winning juried national and international awards, including
the New York American Artists Professional League, of which she is a
Fellow. Her work is in collections of university presidents, architectural
curators, corporate leaders and art enthusiasts world wide, and in Rome
Stanley's art is mingled among the 14th,15th, and 16th century art that
comprises a major private collection.
