Michaela Crie Stone grew up swinging on buoys tied to trees, arranging perfectly coiffed seaweed wigs, and building forts in the woods on the coast of Maine. After receiving a degree in sculpture, she returned to her home town of Rockport to attend the Center’s Twelve-Week Intensive in 2011. Michaela subsequently worked as a summer assistant and was awarded a year-long Studio Fellowship. She still dabbles in fort-building.
