Ileana Prosper Holman

Ileana Prosper Holman is an award-winning artist in the Tampa Bay area where she works from life, photos and imagination to express the beauty and emotion of the human face and figure. She’s a Certified Activity Professional and in 2015, created Face to Face Art and Wellness, an innovative expressive arts program designed for residents in community-based settings.

Ileana hosts classes and workshops in public and private venues and is a Presenter for Hillsborough County public libraries. Her prize-winning artwork is displayed internationally and her “Island Girl” mural is featured on The Good Wall in Miami’s “Little Havana.”


From all my years of observing the human face and figure, I‘ve come to realize that no matter who we are or where we come from, we connect through similar feelings and emotions. There is an innate beauty and complexity in each of my subjects, real or imagined, that I seek to expose in my artwork. When I’m able to convey this in my portraits, it is my ultimate catharsis.
