Artist Biography

Artist Bio:
Jono Stone is a local artist, born in Waiharakeke (Blenheim) and moved to call Ōtautahi home in 2023 after stints in various cities across: Aotearoa, Australia and Canada.
Studying and pursuing a career in Graphic design, he’s explored the world of digital arts, however, in recent years followed a “natural pull” back to his artistic roots in more traditional mediums.
As a Yogi and Taoist, his toi is heavily influenced by nature, the exploration of consciousness, and spirituality. His beliefs, life experience and passions can all be found in his mahi.
With a love for connecting with others and sharing the importance of creative expression, it’s no surprises he was drawn to local acclaimed artist/carver; Jon Jeet. Under Jon’s guidance, Jono has learnt the art of carving and become a facilitator for Jon and his wife’s community initiative: Tūhono Taonga, Tūhono Tāngata.
Jono sees carving taonga as a spiritually therapeutic practice for all involved and enjoys the contrast to his other art projects.
*Note: All pounamu Jono carves is authentic Aotearoa greenstone correctly sourced through his kaiko/mentor; Jon Jeet. For every taonga made an additional piece is carved and gifted to Tūhono Taonga, Tūhono Tāngata; helping connect the community through mātauranga toi.
