His limited edition print series, “Home Front Aviation,” embodies a nostalgic look at America’s love affair with military aviation during the 1940s.
Stan’s realistic narrative style and impeccable historical fidelity, make his period paintings a window into one of aviation’s most exciting eras.
A native Californian, Stan spent much of his youth in Southern California which, in the mid-1950s, was a national focal point of aviation with numerous aircraft manufacturers and military airfields.
A stress engineer in the aerospace defense industry for 30 years, Stan originally turned to painting as a means to relieve stress and serve as a diversion. Stan’s early successes convinced him to take his painting more seriously.
After discovering the American Society of Aviation Artists, Stan merged his love of aviation with his desire to paint. Encouraged by other aviation artists, he has started to develop his own approach to aviation art, one that combines history, aviation and the human interface that makes aviation so important to all of us. With images quite different from the main stream aviation art, Stan has found a unique niche that satisfies both artist and collector.
Stan began producing and marketing limited edition prints of his works in 1995. One of these works, “Impressing the Night Shift,” was recreated in “living art” during the Laguna Beach Pageant of the Masters’ 1999 millennium season. In 2008, Stan’s latest painting, “Lightning Lady,” won the ASAA award for Women’s Contribution to Aviation and third place in Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine’s annual art contest.
Stan has donated two of his framed prints to the AHSAA to auction as the 2017 Golf Classic, Dinner & Auction. Thank you, Stan, for your support of “Old AU.”
