Overview

Iona Howard (born 1964, The Lizard, Cornwall)  specialises in carborundum and drypoint prints that are handmade and hand printed in her studio near Cambridge.

 

Iona’s prints use figuration and abstraction to portray the landscape of places she knows well. The sources can come from working en plein air or expressing landscape filtered through memory. The physicality of her approach to the printing process combined with a contemplative exploration of surface makes the subject spontaneous and vibrant whilst capturing an intimate connection with the landscape. 

 

She has lived on the Fen Edge near Cambridge for the last twenty years and the focus of her work is the meeting point of land, horizon and sky, their flatness altering the perception of distance. Her prints have gradually evolved from monochromatic studies by introducing colour to reflect the Fens’ ever-changing mood and light. 

 

In recent years Iona’s prints have been selected for the Society of Women Artists Annual Open Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition,  the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers International Original Print Exhibition amongst others.

 

Iona was awarded an MA in Fine Art Printmaking at Cambridge School of Art in 2009, and has previously studied at the Royal College of Art, Winchester School of Art and Falmouth School of Art.
