I paint what I call heirloom paintings, portrait, figure and landscape paintings that will be enjoyed down through generations. My only objective is to create paintings of lasting value that will be treasured forever. I am truly blessed to be among the generations of painters who have recorded their time on canvas.
Moving to the fine-art-loving area of New Hope/Lambertville, NJ in ‘05, I have been able to expand my painting opportunities and now my work is in the private collections in four states. My paintings have won significant awards in all of the important regional juried fine art exhibitions including;
2005 76th Phillips’ Mill Juried Show – The Hughes Award
2005 Abington Art Center Annual Juried Show – Award for Technical Merit

Stacy has been producing creative visual imagery all his life starting with oil painting landscapes in my early teens. I went on to gain a BFA in 1971 from the Philadelphia College of Art (now The University of the Arts). I began with a career as an Independent Illustrator, then Graphic Designer, then Creative Director/Owner of an Advertising Agency, then finally to painting portraits with the highest quality of execution and visual distinction.
