"The best part is knowing you created that stir," says Jilek. "That shake-up to their day that they didn't see coming. Something they have never experienced before." Her work embodies the feeling of breaking free from the constraints of the canvas, pushing boundaries and visually conveying the idea of going just a little bit further.
Jilek is currently the artist in residence at the iconic Ambassador Hotel in Chicago, IL, where she continues to create and inspire audiences. With over 15 years of entrepreneurial experience, she has also shared her insights and perspectives on the art and business world as a speaker at the Future Galerie in Chicago. Her work has been featured in numerous prominent publications and advertising campaigns, including Architectural Digest, the Sun Chips x Bobby Berk "Art Seen" campaign, and in the homes and offices of some of the most influential individuals across the country.
