Born in Issoudun a small town in the Centre-Val de Loire region of France, Stan then moved to the seaside town of Biarritz in the French Basque Country in south-western France and from there came to Australia.


From an early age, Stan was drawing and writing poetry which developed over the years into a passionate love of painting and for the past four years he has practiced his art every day. Inspired by all that is around him and his surfer lifestyle, Stan's colourful, abstracted style of paintings are imaginative scenes of different places characterised by imperfectly marked objects, shapes and darkened figures he calls either silhouettes or shadows. His work is held in collections both in Australia and overseas.
