Elizabeth Stone grew up outside of Albany, N.Y. Her mother had a passion for art, animals and plants and passed this love on to her children. Elizabeth started painting, drawing and gluing macaroni to cardboard at an early age. She took her first photography class in high school and never looked back.
Elizabeth's photography has been exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum, the Newport Art Museum, the Museum of the Rockies and the Missoula Art Museum, as well as in galleries around the West. In addition, her work has been published in BARk, Offspring, Outdoor Photographer and Northern Lights magazines. Elizabeth has led photography workshops, seminars and classes around the world for RMSP since 1994, sharing with students her enthusiasm, creative vision and strong passion for what she loves. In addition, Elizabeth is a strong advocate for animals and her recent photographic work has concentrated on companion animal welfare and animals in captivity. To raise awareness and funds for homeless animals around the country, she created a collection of artist books with writers Rita Mae Brown, Sissy Spacek and Humane Society of the U.S. President Wayne Pacelle, called Small Lives.
