Stanley Rector (1943-2020) was the son of Tom Rector, who was also a well known Nova Scotian folk artist. Stanley worked as a woodsman, coal miner, lobster fisherman, truck driver in his early years and eventually settled in as an employee of Harrisons Building Supplies for many years until his retirement.
Stanley began carving in the late 1980's, and primarily carved people but also occasionally birds and bears engaged in various activities. Tom and Stanley attended the Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival and were well known for their stick men.
