Nata a Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., Judith Stone ha vissuto la sua giovinezza a Great Neck, Long Island, una cittadina vicino a New York City.

I suoi genitori avevano un interesse appassionato verso qualsiasi tipologia di manifestazione artistica – teatro, musica, danza, arti visive – che li portò a compiere gite settimanali a Manhattan nella quale ebbero modo di sfruttare appieno le ricchezze culturali della vivace Mecca. Nutrita intellettualmente anche dalle ricolme librerie dei genitori, Stone frequentò il Vassar College, dove si è laureata cum laude in letteratura inglese e francese.

Ha continuato poi gli studi con un Master all’Università di Harvard, laureandosi in lingua e letteratura francese, pensando in quel momento di affrontare una carriera rivolta alla critica letteraria e all’insegnamento.

Tuttavia sei anni dopo, sempre più cosciente della sua inclinazione artistica Stone si è trasversalmente spostata verso le arti visive dedicandosi alla progettazione artistica e diventando ad oggi il fulcro della sua attività professionale da ormai quasi quattro decadi. L’artista ha così ottenuto una seconda Laurea Magistrale in pittura ed incisione a Boulder, Università del Colorado, che le ha permesso di strutturare e intensificare l’affinità con il disegno in grafite, (adesso più accuratamente chiamata “tecnica mista su carta”) da sempre anima e cuore della sua oeuvre.

È inoltre degno di nota che oltre ad essere completamente impegnata nella creazione artistica nel suo atelier Stone non ha mai e per nessuna ragione abbandonato lo studio della letteratura, disciplina che ha caratterizzato gli anni universitari, sia in triennale che parte di quelli in magistrale. Frequentando assiduamente dipartimenti accademici, Stone per 35 anni ha tenuto conferenze e seminari di letteratura inglese ed americana, design, arte e storia dell’architettura in svariati campus universitari di Denver, Philadelphia, Burlington, Vermont e Tokyo.

Come la vita professionale anche le sue esperienze di viaggio sono state allo stesso modo eclettiche. Ha vissuto a Parigi, Accra, Ghana e a Tokyo, per circa un anno in ognuna, ed ha viaggiato nelle isole britanniche, in Europa dell’Est e dell’Ovest, in Giappone e in Israele. Ugualmente centrali per la creazione delle sue immagini sono i suoi numerosi viaggi negli Stati Uniti d’America grazie ai quali ha avuto modo di acquisire maggiore familiarità con la vastità e varietà topografica ma anche con gli ambienti culturali che caratterizzano la sua terra d’origine. E’ proprio l’ampiezza d’osservazione ottenuta grazie ai molteplici viaggi arricchita con una lettura interpretativa quasi ossessiva che fornisce il materiale di partenza per la realizzazione delle sue opere.

Le opere su carta di Stone sono presenti in collezioni pubbliche e private negli Stati Uniti d’America ed in Giappone, come nell’ University City Science Center di Philadelphia, nel Museo dell’Università del New Hampshire a Durham e nel Frederick Harris Studios di Tokyo.

È inoltre inclusa nell’opera di Marquis “Who’s Who in American Art” e “Who’s Who in American Women”.
