After a career in advertising as an art and creative director and founder of ‘DM’ advertising agency and Stream Marketing and a Creative Director of Dorland Direct. Iona is now following her passion to print and paint.
When she left the commercial world of advertising, she began to develop her colourful marks under the tutelage of Tony Rothon and Sarah Nutley. With her design background, Iona’s work achieves a combination of composition and colour, capturing light, movement and mood.
“My work is a fresh and expressive response to place and memory. My paintings are lively abstract landscapes and my colourful prints are monotypes, unique through the screen paintings. I approach everything with energy and passion.”
‘Iona’s colourful and lively works immediately caught my eye. Her visual language is strong and reflects a lifetime of work as a successful designer.’
