I found one. Here it is:

def piltoimage(pil,alpha=True):
    """Convert PIL Image to wx.Image."""
    if alpha:
        image = apply( wx.EmptyImage, pil.size )
        image.SetData( pil.convert( "RGB").tostring() )
        image = wx.EmptyImage(pil.size[0], pil.size[1])
        new_image = pil.convert('RGB')
        data = new_image.tostring()
    return image
