“I discovered your artwork; I am very impressed by your digital art concerning the female identity, namely your creations, Traveling through Time, Upside Down Waterfalls and Drowning Souls. It’s such an inspiration to me; I’ve never seen work so original and creative. It is an almost cosmic and poetic approach to female psyche and soul. I’m looking forward to seeing your work in person in real Strasbourg Winter. The piece published in the Art Daily News International Magazine is a remarkable, almost animate abstract; a kind of life generator telling so many stories - vibrant red for all creations, blue for water and ocean, green for nature - surprisingly generating one harmonious and meaningful movement. That is what I see in your artwork, however, as far as this artwork, the beauty of its interpretations is endless… I wish you all the success and good luck with your work and artwork.” Gabriela Oravova | Artistic Photographer | Czech Artistic photographer living in Belgium"There are many good and interesting artists and artworks across the globe. Be it classical, contemporary, conceptual, sculpting, digital art, environmental, street art; anything. But some artists have an exclusive skill, and they are in the few. Ileana Collazo is, in my view, one of the top ten visual skills we have in our time. Her eye for composition is high in its skill. I see it even in a couple of her images as I see how the colors and visuals are chosen to go together. Schools can offer a lot, support the art in us to come out, but what Collazo and the few in her talent's top league have, is something an artist is born with or not. If you are an art collector, she is one name to definitely keep in mind." Sini Kunnas, Artist, Art Advisor, Public Speaker | Finland

Digital Art Series Statement: The search for other worlds is an integral component of the human condition. How can we be the only ones floating alone in such a vast universe? As I careen through space miraculously attached to our tiny planet by an unseen force, I look up at the sky and wonder. "Alternate Landscapes" are interpretations of my other worlds daydreams.
Digital Art Series statement: Open the curtains and let the sunlight shine on the floor the walls, the furniture; watch the water glitter as the full moon beams burst through night shadows; turn on the light and watch everything come to life. Light is one of the most magical components of our world. " Light Tunnels" captures that magic as I manipulate nature, water, and objects employing this elusive element as my starting point.
Digital Art Series Statement: A daydreamer from an early age, I often disappeared into my grandmother's garden to get away from everyone bent on derailing me from my musings. Flowers became silent, beautiful companions that each day captivated me more with their delicate beauty. Short-lived and wilting too soon as others took their place, their ghosts following me through the years and becoming the catalyst for my artistic career.
Human Woman: The Female Identity International Project | Who We are
Digital Art Series statement: The struggle to adequately characterize the female identity has been long and hard, and no nearer to a resolution today than two centuries ago when women began demanding their right to be "equally viable" members of a male-dominated society. A lot has changed since then; our sex has risen to a level of power and recognition that exponentially exceeds the expectations of our equal-rights pioneering warriors. But a sexual/cognitive component of the stigma - one that seems almost impossible to overcome - still holds us hostage to too many of the old labels. Restrictions that we, ourselves, seem bent on perpetuating; incomprehensively, at the same time we fight to gain full control of our rightful place in society.
