Pencil drawings soak up your attention like no other kinds of drawings; maybe it's the poetically soft strokes, the intended swop of depths, or something else. I have been quite a fan of pencil drawings because everything they express seems to multiply in romanticism. Pencil drawings seem able to portray a muted reality in which colors are not allowed to lend the usual force to liven up the pictures. But this is not necessarily the case in Ileana Hunter's works. Instead of loneliness, her drawings are habituated to warmth and intimacy.

And you haven't even heard the most amazing thing: she is a completely self-taught artist.

PS. the third picture is real photograph, not drawing. But you couldn't tell, right?
