Meet Kas Stone – an Artist of White Point
Kas has been an Artist of White Point for several years. Earlier in 2018 in honour of World Oceans Week we gifted one of her works which was reproduced on a scarf made 100% from plastic bottles!
We invited Kas to offer some insight to her work, so you can better understand what goes into the creations we have within our Shop and the next time you meet her, maybe at our Annual Artists of White Point Showcase on Nov. 18th!
KAS STONE PHOTOGRAPHY
I spent my formative years on the Atlantic coast in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. This sparked a passion for wild coastal scenery and moody weather that has sustained my spirit and inspired my photography ever since. The appeal is partly aesthetic, but also deeply rooted in my love of the outdoors and my interest in geology and the natural environment.
After a 20-year stint ‘learning the ropes’ in Toronto, I moved back east in 2013 and now make my home in the seaside community of Dublin Shore in Nova Scotia’s Lunenburg County, where I run a studio gallery and lead workshops in photography and digital imaging.
About My Work:
My photography began as a way to record and remember my wilderness travels. From these documentary roots, it has evolved to a more expressive and personal style of landscape imagery that ranges from sweeping vistas to intimate portraits of the smaller landscapes beneath our feet. I once regarded Photoshop as a necessary evil; now I embrace it as a creative tool and use it to transform the camera’s raw materials into works of photographic art. Their style often leave viewers wondering: Is this a photograph, or a painting? — a question that always delights me!
