Stone has been painting professionally for more than 10 years, drawing inspiration from everyday beauty and experiences. Her style is unique and interesting, and as captivating as the artist herself.

“An artist needs to paint with intention,” she says. “But after a while, you just need to let your brush dance, and it becomes a painting that invites the viewer to be a participant, not just a spectator.”

Stone calls herself a “contemplative painter,” putting her soul into each thoughtful brushstroke. “I choose to make my mark in every way, in each painting I create,” she says. “Sometimes it’s subliminal, but I’m always compelled to feel a passion for my art before I'm ready to share it with others.”
