Dione Verulam was brought up in Sussex and went to Exeter University where she read History and Archaeology. At the start of her artistic career, Dione worked with her mother trading as Verona Stencilling looking after private clients, interior decorators, hotels, restaurants, and several churches. Dione then founded the Gorhambury Group, and studied painting under a succession of art masters over a period of 15 years. She lives at Gorhambury, St Albans and is an occasional student at the University of Hertfordshire.
Nowadays, Dione focuses on making collages. The tearing, cutting and laying of one coloured shape beside another gives her the freedom she enjoys. Her work is informed by family life, foreign lands, and the people she meets along the way. Over the years, Dione has designed carpets, corten steel cutouts, painted and stencilled screens, stencilled curtains, cushions and a weathervane.
Dione's work is in collections in the UK, Australia, America, Switzerland and Spain.
