Andrea Stanley is a graduate of the UCLA School of Arts with a major in Design and studied at the San Francisco Academy of Art. Although she has done extensive commercial work, her first love has always been fine art. She is currently a Signature Member of both Women Artists of the West and the National Oil and Acrylic Painters' Society and a Full Member of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club. Locally, Andrea is Past-President of the Thousand Oaks Art Association.

Andrea's paintings are a reflection of her fascination with light and color, which stems from years of affection for and study of impressionist and post-impressionist artists of Europe as well as turn-of-the-century artists of California. Andrea's works include landscape, still life, figurative, and western subjects in oil, charcoal, and pencil.

Her work has exhibited and won numerous awards in juried shows and exhibits by international, national, and local fine arts organizations, including the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, the Olaf Wieghorst Museum and the Women’s Museum of California. Andrea's work is included among both municipal and private collections throughout the United States. Born in San Francisco, Andrea currently resides in Hidden Hills, California.
