Iona BuchananIona Buchanan Gifts & Homeware
Iona Buchanan is an artist and illustrator whose original works have been in constant demand since she gave up work in a commercial art gallery 20 years ago to create paintings rather than to sell them.
A botanical illustrator by training and inclination, her first passion was carefully observed and beautifully detailed watercolours of flowers, fruit and vegetables, (expect to see more of this in the months ahead). But a series of commissions from private collectors and some very bad puns by family members broadened her range of subjects to include birds, sea life and cartoons.
Frustrated by the inability to keep up with demand for originals and encouraged by clients, friends and relatives, she looked for opportunities to make her illustrations and images more widely available. It soon became evident that many of her images added charm, beauty and, sometimes, humor to numerous everyday household items.
Iona Buchanan’s design feature on cards, wrapping paper, prints, cushions, aprons, teatowels and a multitude of potential gidt options.
