Ileana Collazo has been painting just over 5 years, yet has already claimed the title of featured artist at the Brickell Wine & Food Festival, Coconut Grove Arts Fair, PhilanthroFest, RAW and Art Basel.

Up next for the artist is a run of hand-painted wine bottles that will have your head swirling faster than its contents.
