Stan Davis, born in 1942, with extensive experience in advertising agencies, is an illustrator in oil of 19th-century Blackfoot, Sioux and Cheyenne Indians. In an attempt to ensure historical and cultural accuracy, Davis makes every costume used in his paintings.

He graduated from the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida. Davis joined the Air Force after working for a year for an advertising agency in Coco Beach, Florida. After his discharge in 1968, he moved to Los Angeles, where he became art director for a large advertising agency. The Pearce Western Art Collection of Navarro College, in Corsicana, Texas has three of Davis’ paintings, “The Apotheosis of EE-NEV-AH”, “The Prayer Feather” and “Wildhorse: An American Witness”.
