Painted Stones by Stone Creations North Yorkshire Artist "Denise Mathers"

Denise is a self-taught artist born in Manchester, who has been living in Northallerton for the last 28 years. Since early childhood she has enjoyed drawing & painting animals, and has always felt a special connection with them. Most of her working life has been spent working with animals, including working in animal welfare, and surrounded by a variety of pets & rescued wildlife at home.
She started painting wildlife & pet portraits in 1992, mainly in watercolour, pastel & pen/ink. In 2002 she found a unique way of portraying animals, as “Stone Creations” using the natural shape of stones. Stones are carefully chosen for individual shape, before transforming them with care & precision into unique 3 dimensional lifelike creatures, using acrylic paint. She creates a large range of creatures, including capturing everlasting memories of a beloved pet Stone Creations are meant for indoor, but can be kept outside if they are given several coats of a yacht varnish.
