At a very early age, Stanley Truffini knew what he wanted in life, and he followed his path with unsurpassed vigor and dedication. His two passions, art and veterinary medicine, have lead him on an incredible, sometimes intermingled journey that has now spanned well over 50 years. His paintings have been on multiple covers of the Journal of the American Veterinary Association over the span of 3 decades, as well as numerous recognitions by committees and peers alike. He has won first prize in watercolor at the Richter Art Association in Connecticut.
Born in NYC in 1952, Stanley was already painting with his father, impressionist Guido Truffini, at the age of 8 years old. They would go to Central Park together where they would paint the ducks on the reservoir, and do scenes of the park. Guido was a long standing member of the Art Students League (ASL) thru the 1950s and 1960s and inspired Stanley at a very early age to pick up a brush.
Stanley's art is inspired by what nature provides. He attempts to interpret it in a way that brings visual pleasure to those who see it. Â He likes to give life to a subject by using it's inherent colors and movement thereby creating another viewing dimension. His style is a mix of both plein air and studio, but if you asked him what accomplishment he is most proud of, his answer would simply be "My Family". Together and married to his loving wife and childhood sweetheart Carol since 1975, they have two sons, Daniel and Christopher, and two grandchildren, Anna and Aidan, and spend their time between Connecticut and Nantucket
