Iona was born in London in 1956. After a long and successful career as a designer and art director, Iona is now following her true passion to paint.
When she left the commercial world of advertising she began to developed her vibrant colourful marks under the tutelage of Tony Rothon and Sarah Nutley. As a painter, Iona achieves a unity of composition and colour, through expression – working mainly from life, capturing light, movement and mood.
Iona works from her West London studio. She had her first London exhibition last year. Her work can be seen at galleries in Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and in the USA and can be found in private collections.
