About

Dropped Bowl, trompe l'oeil, painting, blue, red, stripes, dimensional Stanley is a classic storyteller. As an artist or her work involves a media and contains movement, mystery and suspense; as a wife and mother, she basks in the vital role of nurturer, and as a teacher, she stretches her own horizons with and parking was thinking from a lot of time of pursuing her art. Stanley recognizes her "stories" - visual experiences that come to her, often in the form of dreams and daydreams -in a journal, which then becomes the sketchbook from which she distills the dreams into paintings. Once she is dedicated as an artist, working up to 40 hours a week at her studio, but she also enjoys teaching, privately and at a nearby college: " Painting is so egocentric, so solitary, it's nice to get outside yourself, " she says of her passion the passing it on. Helen Stanley grew up in Farmington, Mexico, the past 20 years she has lived in San Rafael, Calif., just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. Married to sculpture Rodger Jacobsen, when she met while a student at San Francisco Art Institute, the couple lives on a wooded acre of land in Marin county. Here Stanley enjoys the luxury of spontaneous walks through dense woods all the way to the sea. She is usually accompanied by her to dogs and often laden with enough art supplies to complete small paintings on location.
