Ilona’s professional background is in fashion and design but she has always been interested in the Arts and painting in particular. As an emerging visual artist Ilona is working primarily with acrylic and ink on canvas. Her art works are mostly figurative but often include elements of a modern abstract ‘vibe’. Fascinated by the structure of the face Ilona loves to portray subjects with striking features. She has worked on portraits of women she has known as well as celebrities, and has recently created a series of portraits of native African women with elements of their tribal fashion.
