Artists that Paint on Stone

Updated on December 19, 2011

Why Paint On Stone?

With a click of a button I can order any painting surface I want to work with, so why paint on stone? In many areas of the world rocks and stones are plentiful and easy to pick up along a river or stream bank or from your own back yard. They usually require no cash outlay making it easy for those on a budget to have a unique surface to paint on. No two rocks are ever identical, which is part of the fun.

Stone was perhaps the first surface man painted, decorating his caves and sacred sites back in the stone age. Today Rock Art is an emerging art form with many talented artists getting in on the fun. Painting on a stone is to paint a 3-D image on a 3D-object, giving a sculptural feel to your work, without the bother of learning to create a sculpture from scratch.

Pet portraits and memorial stones are becoming more and more popular, especially as more people opt out of having children and just have pets instead. Stones painted with acrylic paint and sealed against the weather become unique pieces of garden art. Stones are a forgiving surface, make a mistake, just paint over it. This makes stone painting a no stress surface for beginning artists.

How I got started Painting on Stone

I learned to paint on stone from Lin Wellford's Books

One day at the library I saw a book about painting animals on rocks by Lin Wellford. Her three dimensional paintings intrigued me and I couldn't wait to get started. I followed her simple step by step instructions and was on my way. Those first rocks looked a little amateurish, but as they say, practice makes perfect.

Today I create some very lifelike animal art on stone and sell them through a local shop as well as online. Along the way I have learned many things about painting in general, painting with acrylic paints, creating 3-D paintings and how to paint life like animals. I will share some of these discoveries in future lenses. Also along the way I have 'met' other rock artists and learned even more. Here I will highlight some of those artists as well as some resources so you can get started on your own adventure in Rock Art.

Lin Wellford, Arkansas, United States

Lin Wellford is perhaps the most well know rock artist in the United States. Lin is the author of several books on rock painting, from super simple designs suitable for young children to some very lifelike animals. Her instructions are easy to follow and understand with great color photographs to help you along. In addition to the book projects Lin includes photographs of many other related animals to inspire you. Lin's book "Painting Animals on Rocks" was the first one I discovered. I've happily worked my way through most of the rest of her books. No matter how long I paint I always find some new tip that helps me out in a new book.

Links for Lin Wellford

Lin's website and the rock painting group at Yahoo!

Rock Painting books on Amazon

You can find Lin Wellford's book at Amazon. For Suzi Chua's e-books, please visit her website directly.

Just a few of the dogs I've painted this year. My goal for 2011 is to paint as many of the usual or most popular breeds as I can.

Suzi Chua Rocks Malaysia

Suzi Chua's wonderful stone food!

Late one night through a random Google search I happened across the website of Suzi Chua. Suzi is a self taught artist working with pastel on paper and acrylic paint on stone. Over the years she has literally painted hundreds, if not thousands of stones, ranging from domestic pets to exotic wild animals. Suzi has a kind and giving heart and freely offers help and advice through the Stone Painting forums accessible on her website as well as the Lin Wellford Original Rock Painting group on Yahoo! newsgroups.

Suzi has now published several e-books about rock painting. Working through the projects Suzi provides in her e-books, from very simple to quite elaborate will give any beginning artist a great foundation in this art form. She has painted and published so many photographs of her works over the years that she had to move her older photographs to a separate website.

Links for Suzi Chua

Suzi has several websites where you may view her work, order an e-book or ask advice for painting problems.

Lisa Carter, USA

Lisa Carter's specialty is miniature rock paintings, whole cats, dogs and other animals set on stones that are sometimes less than the size of a quarter. Lisa collaborated with Suzi Chua and Flora Tan on Suzi's latest e-book "Lets Get Catty".

Flora Tan, Borneo Rocks, Malaysia

Flora Tan is another Malaysian rock artist. She collaborated with Suzi Chua and Lisa Carter on Suzi's latest e-book, "Let's Get Catty". Flora, like most rock artists takes pet portrait commissions, as well as painting other animals, like the unique ones native to Malaysia. Many of Flora's animals sport bandanas or ribbons with messages on them, a nice way to say "I love You".

This leopard rock was quite large, about 12x12 inches and about 16-18 inches long. I almost couldn't lift him.

Painted Rocks on E-bay

I've discovered there are many artists that paint on stone and sell their creations on ebay. If this sections displays a message that there aren't any auctions for hand painted rocks right now, it just means they've sold and you'll have to come back later!

More Rock Artists Around the World

There are many excellent Rock Artists around the world, transforming ordinary stone into extraordinary art. I can't always read their websites if they are in a foreign language, but I always enjoy the pictures, I hope you will too.

Not all Rock Art is serious. Some of mine is down right silly, like my 6 toed giant foot. It all depends on what the rock says to me....

Angel Blessings

Squid Art provided by Steve Thompson, aka tagsforkids

Squidoo Angels are super nice people that volunteer to read and 'bless' lenses. A blessing is like a super duper giant LIKE and gives the lens a little bit of a boost in lens rank. They also share those lenses with a lot of other people so more people discover you. This lens has been wonderfully blessed and I am honored that you all thought it was good enough!

These lovely Angels have blessed this lens, thank you! I very much appreciate your help and support!

Lens of the Day

This Lens was Lens of the Day on June 16, 2011. This is a very high honor to me, I had only been a member of Squidoo for 26 days and this was my very first lens that I published. I'd like to thank everyone who gave me helpful hints, read, liked and shared my lens. The Squidoo community is wonderful and I'm proud to be a part of it.

THE PURPLE STAR

Perhaps because it's been showered with so much Angel dust, this lens was awarded a Purple Star. They don't give out a lot of these in a year, compared to the number of lenses written each year, so this is really and truly a special award to me. Thank you one and all who have had a hand in making my first lens such a success.

This is my very first Squidoo lens and I would love to have your feedback about this page. What do you love, what do you hate, what should I do differently? And if you are a rock artist or know of one, please add their website url to your comments! I love to visit other artists and see their work!

Please sign the Guestbook and give me some feedback!

      Your stone painting is wonderful! I also enjoyed viewing the works that you displayed of some other stone painters. As a child, I collected rocks, mainly because I thought they were natural and beautiful. I haven't painted any yet, but my daughter has received some from her friends over the years. Enjoyed your lens! I might give it a go with some simple ideas.

      What a coincidence! I, too, just completed my first lens in which I mentioned Rocks as one of the many cool things we can paint on. I also said that there were very talented artists doing wonderful animal portraits, etc, on rocks. And now here you are! Thank you so much! I totally enjoyed this lens, photos are fantastic & especially love the little rabbit by Flora Tan. Congrats on being LotD! Blessings.

      @TechDad: I'm going to try to do some simple instructions soon The lady bugs are easy Tip: Use the end of your paint brush handle to make round dots, just dip in paint and make a dot, dip and dot. easy. An eraser is good for bigger spots. i use the outdoor acrylic but if you are not putting them outside any kind of craft acrylic will work.

      Thought I'd make it a double header and add my own (home décor) Squid Angel blessing to this amazing lens. Your lens is now featured on "Wing-ing it on Squidoo," our tribute page to some of the best lenses we've found since donning our wings.

      You are an amazing artist. I had to call my husband over for him to have a look-see too. LOL. He thought the kitty in the intro was a photo of a cat. I am leaving you with a *Squid Angel Blessing* and I've added your link to My Squid Angel Wings to be featured in the "Arts & Design »" neighborhood.
