Ilona Nelson knew she wanted to study photography ever since she was 10 years old, after being compelled to take photos of her beloved Icehouse tape with her 110 camera.

Since then she has completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts with distinction, exhibited nationally, and won awards. Her work can be found on CD covers, in an art textbook, in Melbourne galleries and private collections around Victoria.
