Stanley Wilson (b. 1937)

Sculptor. Born in Douglas, Lanarkshire, but living since his childhood in Edinburgh, he worked as a professional musician from 1961 to 1964, and as an engineer from 1968 until he enrolled as a full-time student at Edinburgh College of Art in 1988. He graduated with a BA in sculpture from Heriot-Watt University in 1992, and in the same year was appointed by the university as its consultant for sculpture design, a post devised to mark the completion of its twenty-one-year building programme on the Riccarton campus.
