Artist Biography:
Susan Volk Stanley grew up in Maryland and was recognized early on for her artistic talents and began selling her watercolors before leaving high school. She started as a fine arts major at Guilford college in North Carolina but when the more abstract oriented instructors told her that realist painters were destined to become Medical
Illustrators she changed her major to visual arts and upon graduation went into the film business working as a prop stylist for print and commercial advertising. In the mid 80's Susan moved West to pursue work as a set decorator and set designer expanding into art direction for episodic television and movie work. In 1985 Susan began a set design company geared to the growing corporate theater market. Her last film brought her to Prescott Arizona where she met Artist Tom Dorr at The Phippen Art Show who told her about The Scottsdale Artists School a place she could find her fine art spirit again. She began studying in earnest with some of todays most sought after master painters including Matt Smith,Scott Christensen,Sherri McGraw, Joni Falk and Ned Jacob and many other talented professional artists. These workshops and others throughout the Southwest proved invaluable leading Susan back to the place she began, to her love of realist painting. In 2001 she sold her successful business, built an expansive art studio in Scottsdale and a place of inspiration in Prescott. These days you will find her painting, creating memorable still life, landscape and animals in oil. She lives with her husband, two children, five horses and a collection of dogs and cats dividing her time between a desert ranch in Scottsdale and a hillside home in Williamson Valley outside of prescott. Surrounded by so much beauty and inspiration it is no wonder that Susan's paintings are now sought after by both private and corporate collectors alike. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, The International Guild of Realism, American Women Artists, The Impressionist Society of America and The Arizona Art Alliance.
