Profile Information

I am a visually and physically disabled artist. I have joined this site to try and help other disabled art students to inspire to go as far as they possibly can in higher education. I have skills in many facets of art and I hope to provide information support and advice to those in need.

Hi my mane is Candice Stock and I live as a disabled contemporary artist with a Maori perspective. I am a Maori of mixed decent and I was born and raised in South Auckland. In 1998 I was diagnosed with Irlan Syndrome, which influences the way I see and learn. When I started my degree in 2006 I was focused on exploring my vision of the world. Half way through 2006 my world was turned upside down, as I changed from physically able to physically disable. Having both my legs crushed by a two hundred and fifty ton truck in a serious motorway accident. In 2007 I returned to art school with a plan. My plan was to use art as form of therapeutic release to create a sense of normality within my world of confusion. Instead of feeling better about my situation I came to understand my situation. Once I reached this state of mind I was inspired to research people who live in a similar situation’s and have dealt with similar issues. This brought me to my exploration of the self. Self-portraiture allows me to explore and become aware of my identity, I believe that the end product is not only a representation of aspects of my identity but an insight to others. I now endeavour to explore Disability Accessibility through a contemporary art form. My goal is to create fun, safe interactive installations while exploring the issue of Disability Accessibility. I want to do this to publicly make aware the plights faced by disabled people in the community. Thanks for reading.

Candice, This is some of the most powerful work I have ever seen.  Your mission is an important one, which I share in my own artwork.  My theme is the "impaired self" behind our disabilities.  Please check out my portfolio, which separates and presents my artwork by themes.  I would be interested in knowing if you can relate at all to what some of my art is expressing.  http://dfeingold.carbonmade.com/  

Thanks for sharing your magnificent work,

Thank you for introducing yourself to me, Candace!  I am also on Facebook.  Are you?  I have an art criticism site called salondagmara on youtube.com, and Art Salondagmara on Facebook as well as my site, Claudia Schwalb and another publication:

I posted one of your pieces plus a link onto Art Salondagmara on FB.  My colleagues on FB are very serious art critics as well as some nice friends, so, you never know.
