Born in Mexico City, Ileana is a professional in graphic communications and advertising. She studied in San Diego, CA. in the United States and later on she returned to Mexico City where she worked as a copywriter, graphic designer and creative director for several advertising agencies, until she realized she had a more artistic calling and a very strong feeling for painting and photography.
She learned about painting techniques with Mexican artist Irma Grizá and engaged in developing and combining her photography and computer graphics skills through her visual expression. She is now an independent visual artist and photographer.
She has been featured and collaborated in some important blogs and magazines about mobile art and photography. Ileana enjoys looking for the beauty out of ordinary things and the special out of our everyday lives and sharing it through her work.
