Book Cover Art
Over my 16 year career, I’ve been commissioned by authors and publishing houses to create quite a few book covers (and illustrations), or have licensed out pre-existing images if they turned out to be exactly what the book needed.
If a book calls out for a portrait with eyes which speak volumes to the reader before they’ve even opened it, and which will invite them in, chances are I’m the woman you need.

Scroll down for a few examples of commissions for book cover art or books that have utilised an existing drawing. It should be noted that I do not design the overall book cover layouts, I merely provide the pencil artwork on which they are based.
“I have used Ileana's amazing talents to create the art for my book covers. In total I have had 6 incredible pieces of art done and each one has been a stunning picture. I particularly appreciate her immense talent to create photo-realistic art but recently she has gone beyond that. The last picture that Ileana did was extraordinary, it went beyond the supplied photographic & she managed to create something wholly exceptional, an improvement on the original picture.
Ileana is a superb artist with an incredible eye for detail, but she also imbues the pictures with her own personality to make them stand out. I whole heartedly endorse Ileana and would urge everyone to use her fantastic talents.”
