The Art of the Book - Helen Stanley

VIEW ALL ARTWORK

About the :
Helen Stanley's individual style, keen sense of observation and love of process have long distinguished her work. She has been widely exhibited in many galleries including the prestigious Paula Anglim Gallery and William Sawyer Gallery in San Francisco and the Susan Cummins Gallery in Mill Valley. She received a Life Work award by the Marin Arts council and was given a retrospective show at the Falkirk Cultural Center, San Rafael, California.

Journalist Nancy Ellis once wrote that Stanley's "evocative works come to the viewer through her unerring eye, impeccable hand and generous heart."

Stanley grew up in Farmington, New Mexico, but moved to San Francisco when she was 18 to attend the Art Institute. She married sculptor Rodger Jacobsen and together they have created a life of family and art, both teaching as well as continuing to pursue their individual work.
