Rebecca Stone

Rebecca Stone is an artist and designer from the small, rural town of Wairoa in Northern Hawkes Bay. After three years at EIT’s IdeaSchool, she finished her Bachelor of Visual Art and Design in 2015.

Her work fits into a range of creative categories, however she always finds herself returning to the humble mode of illustration, as it revitalises her practice each time she engages with the medium in which she began.

Family, nature and spirituality are the key inspirations and drivers of her creative approach. Rebecca aims to encapsulate the soul of her subject by paying close attention to the finer details and layers of colour. All the while striving to portray her gratitude for the ability she has to share the life of something or someone by putting pencil to paper.
