Stanley Bird - Artist

Welcome to my web site. Here you can view a wide selection of my work which includes paintings in acrylics and mixed media on both canvas and board.

I am a Scottish artist based in Edinburgh. After pursuing a successful career in the law, I returned to painting and am now taking my life in a new artistic direction.

I work with a bold palette to create exciting images of the natural world - mainly birds, other animals and trees - images that seize the imagination and that people can relate to.

Although I could be described as "self-taught", for several years I attended evening classes at the Glasgow School of Art to improve my technique, to widen my experience of making art and to stimulate the creative processes.

Stanley Bird - Artist


I work mainly in acrylics and mixed media on board and on canvas - but will use whatever I need to make sure I capture that elusive image. My work ranges from larger scale representational paintings and portraits of animals - bulls, cows, sheep, pigs, deer, horses - both in monochrome and colour - to smaller more intimate, mixed media paintings of those and other animals.

I have been working recently on paintings of birds, exotic and otherwise, against bold flat colourful backgrounds and a series of “dug-shots” - characterful portraits of “Man’s best friend”. I exhibit and sell my paintings through a number of galleries in and around Glasgow and the West of Scotland and in Edinburgh as well as in Perthshire, Royal Deeside and the north of England.

I have also exhibited and sold at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts (RGI) and Paisley Art Institute (PAI) and the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW).

My paintings are also for sale through this website. I also undertake private commissions.
