Kimon Scott Iannetta
Willson Y. Stamper was my father. I have many of his paintings and pictures of paintings as well as letters if anyone wants to contact me for information.
The paintings in Nova Scotia may have been painted By Bills very good friend Don Curley who is a canadian wild life paiter in Chester. The place in Antigonish was sold in the eventies and from then on he rented in Chester N.S.
Beths question is best answered that most of his paintings of any import before 1950 were destroyed in a fire at a collectors residence on Oahu. I also may be able to authenticate bills signature for Diana. His daughte lives in Kailua under the name of Kim Scott as far as I know
Willson Y. Stamper designed weave
I have a tray and on the back is stamped" Genuine Hawaiian Monkey Pod Wood Weave designed by Willson Y. Stamper Honolulu Acadamy of Arts". Probably made in early 1950s. Owned by my family since early 1950. Probably bought new. Was looking for any history re the artist and the tray. Tray size is about 12" X 18".

Kimmie Stammper, daughter, was a very good friend of my sisters. The Stampers lived on the end of our street. (corner of Kainalu and Omao), not Kalaheo. Kimmie currently lives in Kailua although she has a different last name. I can't think of it now.
Our neighbor in Kailua
My family lived next door to the Stampers on Kalaheo Drive in Kailua, Hawaii during the mid 1940s. I was 5 years old when we moved there.
I remember Bill as being a Fun Guy. He helped my dad build a boat, and always had time for a couple of beers and a lot of laughs.
He would hand out his paintings like I give away photographs. I have two of them that were given to my parents. Any information on his children, Kim and Allen would be appreciated.
Studied with Willson Stamper in Hawaii
During the early 1980s I studied with Willson Stamper at his studio in Hawaii. For several months I took lessons in painting and masters technique, coming each day by bus across the island from Honolulu for private lessons with the master. I will never forget these lessons. The studio he had was rustic Hawaiian and on wooden pylons, almost out of a Gaugain painting. We used to talk about art and history after the 3 hour sessions from a demanding and brilliant taskmaster. He recommended the Art Students League in New York for furthur study. I would like to hear from his daughter whom I remember well and most specificly a painting he did for me as a demonstration, which I still have in my portfolio. Utilizing very difficult to mix colors he did an illusionistic painting without a brush in less than 30 seconds...
Thanks to his help and guidence I am still an artist.
Willson Stamper seeking painting
I am looking for a painting Willson Stamper did of his son Allen as a young boy. The painting shows Allen in red pajamas laying on his bed playing with a string of christmas lights. Please contact me if you have any information on the whereabouts of this painting. Thank you!
Wilson Young Stamper
I am looking for a signature of Wilson Young Stamper. I have an 18x20 oil on canvas Hawaii landscape scene, and the artist signature is Stamper. I would like to verify. Please email if you have his signature available
In the early 1980's Mr. Stamper did a portrait of me. I was 14 years old. The portrait is of a young teenage girl, red curly hair wearing a white off the should blouse and emerald drop earings. It is a head and shoulder portrait. This portrait was painted by the artist in his summer rental home in Chester, Nova Scotia. Any information on the portrait would be appreciated, where it is located, possibly the owner(s). I would love to know what became of it after his death in the late 80's.
