Iona went to Canterbury College of Art where she studied Art and design under the typographer Peter Sullivan. After 10 years as Creative Director at Dorland Direct she founded the creative agency Stream Marketing. When she left the commercial world of advertising she began to develop her colourful marks under the tutelage of Tony Rothon and Sarah Nutley.
Iona is an expressive colourist working in paint and silkscreen. Her work has a vibrant energy, capturing light, movement and mood. “My work is an expressive response to place and memory." Colour, composition and placement along with free, colourful marks help create lively works.
Iona exhibits regularly in galleries in London, Gloucester and as a Saatchi artist at The Other Art Fair.
Her prints are shown at the Ealing Gallery, For Arts Sake.
