Michaela Stoneman is a talented printmaker making a name for herself from the small rural town of Patea. Her work is informed by her curiosity for the world around her and her insatiable passion for the printmaking process. Michaela believes everyone is an artist and, alongside her own practice, works as Art Coordinator for the South Taranaki District Council, encouraging others to find the artist hidden within.
Many of our distance students live in rural areas, small towns and far flung areas of the country. We made this artist profile about Michaela Stoneman, her printmaking practise and how she finds being an artist in the town of Patea.
This is one of the videos available to our students at The Learning Connexion School of Art and Creativity. We have an onsite video production department which creates resources for students. Students who are studying onsite at our Taita campus can check these out via our video library. Students studying from a distance receive material like this on video as part of their programme. We create material that covers techniques, ideas about creativity, and profiles about artists.
