About Iona

Feeling her way into colour, space and texture.

Welcoming emerging bodies, buildings, waterways and skies. Painting for Iona is about surrender and trust – surrendering to a flow and being shown worlds beyond worlds.

Painting hold great wonderment for Iona, the wonder of recording feeling, textures, spirit of place and time. This is the language she use to express how she experiences the energy, spirit and vibration of this life. Perhaps you will resonate with it. It's the textured surface that rivets her, a certain ambiguous, abstracted quality in paint that suggests worlds within worlds, faces and feelings.
