Ione is an Avant-garde artist whose artistic expression takes fantastic shape through her diverse oil and watercolor paintings, bronze sculptures, found object collages and mixed media assemblages.
Ione’s art has been shown nationally since 1998 when, after years of world travel, a successful television, radio, theatre and film career in the performing arts, she decided to focus her richly diverse talents on the visual arts. Ione’s artistic expression, creativity, and passion for communication have resulted in numerous awards for her painting, sculpture, mixed media, and assemblage.
Her work has also been featured in several important publications and Ione maintains an extensive exhibition schedule in juried, non-juried, and invitational arts venues.
Ione’s philosophy is outlined and communicated in her following thoughts; "I Dream, therefore I am. I create art because I must. It is a necessary extension of my life. It identifies and substantiates my existence. It is my profile and my legacy. I want to intrigue and entertain. I want to initiate wonder and questions. I want to communicate my thoughts, dreams and desires. Most of all, I want to be."
