BruceStanfieldArtist picture



Born 1963 in Christchurch, New Zealand. He has had a number of creative endeavors, including music, photography, writing and automobile customizing. Painting has always been a mainstay throughout his life.
To quote him “ with everything going digital (which I do embrace) I find painting with a brush and real paint is raw, primitive and satisfying in so many different ways and on so many different levels”. Stanfield was a musician in his early twenties, playing in garage bands and recording local bands for a record label he co-founded called “Suicide city”. In his late twenties and early thirties he was an award winning photographer, with Hamilton city’s largest “drive in” studio focusing on commercial and industrial work. Later he wrote articles and supplied photographs to national and international magazines. In his mid thirties Bruce worked on cruise ships as an entertainer and host. There he met his wife Kimberley and both moved their careers back into the art business working as Art Directors for Princess Cruises fine arts (Global Fine Arts) working with and promoting major living artists (at the time) such as Peter Max, Leroy Neiman and Thomas Kinkade. He also had the distinction of selling original works of art by masters such as Picasso and Chagall and Erte. A permanent move to North America in 1999, found Bruce painting again and after many years working out of the USA and the UK, Canada has become his second home. Painting is on a whole different level now with his young daughter setting up her easel and borrowing Dad’s paints!
