Amy Stone was born and raised in the suburbs of New York City. She has a BA in Fine Arts and Comparative Literature from the University of Colorado, and a Masters in Art Education from Hofstra University. Since relocating to Seattle in 2014 with her family, she has shifted her medium to painting with a focus on abstract expressionism and abstract women. A mom of two young boys, she draws inspiration from even the most mundane tasks in her daily life. Stone says that her work relates to the idea of Wabi-sabi; the quintessential Japanese aesthetic. It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. A beauty of things unconventional. This is often how her paintings are described. Stone says this idea is translated to her work as she strives to create a balance of color, texture, movement, and energy.

Forever passionate about what he does, Jared loves the uniqueness of portraits, events, runway, and weddings, as well as the creative freedom of fashion photography. Because of his inability to settle on any single genre he named his business "Identity Crisis Studio".
He's rarely seen on social media as he stays very busy with corporate, event, and wedding photography, in addition to a wide array of other projects. His strong work ethic and innovation have positioned him as one of the most sought-after runway photographers in the Seattle area.
