Richard Stanley

I love the colours and tones of sky and water both early morning and evening.



A Fresh Pitch


Richard has been painting oil and pastel landscapes for around 30 years on and off. Over the last 15 years he has turned professional and operates his own Art Gallery/Studio on the main street of Cygnet, Tasmania.

He produces and sells his own original oil paintings in his gallery “Stanley’s Studio/Gallery in Cygnet” and also reproduces these for sale into Fine Art Prints.


Following many successful years, where he won several art awards, he was approached by two galleries for representation – Seaview Gallery, Queenscliff, Victoria and Huon Art, Cygnet.

He was also represented by two galleries in Hobart for five years, Gallery Salamanca and Aspect Design.
