Patrice Stanley Fine Art Teacher and Art Consultant

I am a seasoned, mid-career artist with over fifteen years’ experience in a variety of teaching methodologies. I am the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including those from the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council as well as a finalist in the RBC New Painting competition. I have been invited to attend several residencies, I have a long exhibition and I know the art world. My work conjures up the spirits of both post-war Abstract Expressionism and 18th Century landscape painting; it is authentic, innovative and full of historical references. I am represented by gallery Studio Sixty-Six in Ottawa.
