Artist. Born 1950.
Once a painter of large murals, Stan Herd now creates ephemeral works of art with fields, farm equipment and plants. Since 1981 this self-taught artist has created field-sized "pictures" of such subjects as Kiowa Indian Chief Satanta, Will Rogers, a vase of sunflowers and many others.
The best way to observe Herd's work is from the air. Many businesses have used Stan's artwork for eye-catching adds as seen from above. Stan's use of different colored plants gives him the ability to create multi-colored art that is as entertaining as it is large. He was named the Native Sons and Daughters' Kansan of the Year in 1995.
