Artists statement

I am a mixed media artist and I create artworks using acrylics, collage, paper and other media to produce tactile vibrant artwork.

In the last couple of years, I have been travelling and finding inspiration from my experiences of different places. I take lots of photographs and use these to inform my work. I like to find a new perspective on everyday stories and the unexpected. 

I experiment with different techniques, materials and colours to create my artwork. I enjoy texture and colour and these are an essential part of the finished work. Unfortunately, this does mean the work looks better in the flesh than on a photograph. However I exhibit regularly in Surrey so you can see the works for yourself. 


Rue Stanley was born in London sometime in the sixties and grew up in Wimbledon, moving to Surrey 28 years ago. After a successful career in information technology, Rue decided to focus on developing her artistic practice and kickstarted her development with an experimental mixed media course at a local art college. In 2018, Rue set up her own experimental art group to expand opportunities for experiment and collaboration. This group met weekly till summer 2019. In 2019, Rue had three exhibitions at Denbies and has three more booked for 2020.
