Amy Stoner

I make things with wood, wax and paper. From carving a woodblock, pulling a print on the press to applying layers of molten beeswax, I find joy in bringing disparate elements together to create unique, colorful compositions.

I often look to my work as a record of who I am, and where I come from. My mother is a quilter. My father is a woodworker. I relish the control needed in wood carving then “quilt” together a multitude of pieces of my own prints and ephemera together. Finally, I complete the work adding my own unique layers of encaustic. My finished works are tactile “capsules” of multi-generational creativity and handcraft.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art from the University of Oregon (1998). I have been a professional working artist since 2000 and have exhibited and sold my work nationally. I have had my work professionally published in both books and magazines, as well as instructional videos on DVD and cable television.

I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return
