“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!

found object collages and mixed media assemblages. Her
paintings and sculptures range from abstract to realistic to impressionistic all visionary interpretations from her imaginative soul.
Ione uses only one name but a variety of styles to soothe her wild imagination. A native of Chicago, she is a former television star and commercial voice-over artist.
