Nicola Ackland-Snow has been an award-winning commercial illustrator and lecturer in the Bath/Bristol area for the last 17 years. She is well known in local music and art circles, and actually a bit of a well-kept secret, creating quirky pieces for UK & US publishing houses, Fine Art installations, and even working as co-author of the now world-renowned, 'Fly - The Art of The Club Flyer (1996)'.
