“Ione Citrin is one of the most dedicated artists of our day, painting, sculpting and mixing media with delightful abandon. She turns out piece after piece, and the work has a purity of expression that is rare in an artist that is as eclectic herself.”
—Marjorie Kaye, Director, Caladan Gallery, Beverly, MA

“Thank you for submitting your work to Montserrat College of Art Gallery. In reviewing your works it is apparent that your creative energy knows no boundary. Your courageous experimentation with a variety of techniques and styles is a testament to your devotion to the arts. I was most impressed with your mixed-media work, which provides the viewer with the opportunity to enter and explore the environments you’ve created.”
—Leonie Bradbury, Director/Curator-Montserrat College of Art Galleries.

artist statement

“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.”
