Our Story



In 1994, Melinda Earl, a single mother and trained painter, began uniting plaster, oils, china and cloth to produce textured still lifes in her garage. Always trying to improve, she began experimenting with transferring images onto stone. However, the known methods were extremely time-consuming, so she set out to find a better way. After four years of research and experiments, she developed a patented, hand-printing process and founded her first company, PhotoStone (see below). A few years later the idea for StoneImpressions took root and the first dealer for these high-end decorative tiles was established.

Melinda is the creative force behind all of the StoneImpressions products and designs.  She leads and inspires the design team and is intimately involved in every aspect of product development, from new designs and materials to improved production methods.  Melinda has even been known to pack a box or two (but still refuses to drive the forklift.)  Her background in Fine Arts keeps her grounded in what is timeless and lasting rather than passing trends.  Her impeccable taste and great eye ensures that all StoneImpressions designs are of the highest quality.

Melinda’s generous spirit has also been key in developing the overall company ethos, which can be expressed in a few simple phrases.  Be nice. Be helpful. Find ways to say yes.  StoneImpressions develops long-term relationships with its dealers and distributors and strives to be a valuable partner to them.  StoneImpressions has over 400 authorized dealers throughout North America   and continues to grow into new markets.
