Iona recently repatriated having lived in China and Japan for almost 10 years. Whilst this has greatly influenced her work, particularly igniting her passion for colour, she is inspired by an eclectic spectrum of sources. Iona set up a small printing press in her basement kitchen in Beijing, Bunker Press, focussing on etching, blind embossing and bookmaking. She also enjoys digital illustration and incorporating different mediums. She has developed her own textile and surface designs for fabrics and wallpapers and produced work for corporate clients such as Pagefield and London & Partners.
