Dionne applied to go on the programme after being prompted by a friend. “When I received confirmation that I was one of the 30 makers selected out of thousands who had applied, I could hardly believe it!” says Dionne who will be mentored by London-based collage artist and project curator, Sharon Walters.

Dionne creates eye-catching African inspired mosaics and has been working on her business for over 20 years but just needed that extra push to get her to where she longs to be. “Being on the show has been an amazing and unforgettable experience. Sharon’s expertise, guidance and sometimes tough love has given me so much more confidence and belief in myself”

It is Dionne's dream to travel to Africa and learn from traditional artisans which will enhance her practice. She also longs to create something breathtaking for someone famous which will add to her amazing portfolio.

Since filming, Dionne has been working on commissions and exhibiting her work in art fairs.
