"The interests that motivate my paintings derive from a love of God's creation and a closeness to nature from childhood. I am an environmentalist at heart and this has led to many landscapes created from resource photos and made into my own compositions for painting. As a photographer and artist I have been inspired by the photos I have taken over the years in the many travels with my wife. Many of my works reflect my love of the natural world."
Roy Stafford has been a resident of Palatine, IL, since 1949.
