The images in Ilona's work are drawn from an interior world. They seek to give expression to feelings that she cannot express in words.
Blue has been a dominant colour for the past few years. However, Ilona is now moving into a rose phase - the result of a new-found optimism not seen in her earlier work.
The figure of the Bride features in many of her paintings, spurred by a fascination with the veil. Ilona says: 'I grew up with nuns who 'took the veil'. They lived apart from the world - and, as a painter, I also live "apart" from the world, and the veil is a symbol of that self-imposed isolation'.
