Painter and printmaker, born in Manchester. Trained, 1967–71, at St Martin’s School of Art and settled in Cumbria from 1982, living at Blencarn, near Penrith. His oil paintings and lithographic prints reflected a concern with people, labouring on farms, in an urban context or through close study of family or friends. He produced a series of farming lithographs as the result of a bursary from the Gulbenkian Foundation. His oil on linen, Portsmouth, was commissioned for the city’s Central Library. National Science Museum, IBM UK Ltd, Lord Devonport and Dista Products also commissioned Stones. Gulbenkian Foundation provided a bursary to fund a series of lithographs.
