2020 Artists

AMY STONER

Amy Stoner

I make things with wood, wax and paper. From carving a woodblock, pulling a print on the press, to then 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 carving my woodblocks. I then quilt together a multitude of my prints and ephemera together. Finally, I complete the work adding my own unique layers of textured 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.
