Janice Stanley

Janice Stanley

Janice Stanley born 1987, is the third generation of Stanley women to create artwork at Ernabella Arts. She is an early career painter and ceramic artist showing great promise. Her grandmother is a founding artist and traditional healer Tjariya Stanley and her aunts are senior artists, Alison Milyika Carroll and Renita Stanley.
Janice has two children.
Janice’s paintings depict pantu, or salt lakes near Atilla (Mt Conoor). This is a significant location for the seven sisters creation story. This story tells of seven sisters running across the country creating landforms in their wake. Although Janice has never seen them from this perspective herself, she imagines viewing the salt lakes from above.
In 2020 she exhibited in Nganampa ngura-nguru nyurampa ngurakutu (From our place to your place) at Aboriginal Signature in Brussels, as well as several national exhibitions. She has been exhibited around Australia and internationally, in Adelaide, Alice Springs, Broome, Sydney and Brussels.
The Australian Embassy in Zagreb has Janice’s work in their collection.
