Nicole Pisaniello is a fantasy artist living in Richmond, Virginia with her husband and four brilliant cat children. Her work blends the beautiful with the grotesque, drawing on elements of fairy tales and folk horror for inspiration. She enjoys toiling for hours with pen and ink and watercolor to explore delicate textures within each piece. Nicole has been published in 'Infected by Art' volumes 8 and 10 and shown her work in galleries and at the Edgar Allan Poe Museum. Currently she is working with the "Joy of Faeries" team to illustrate two of their character books and with 'Dragonfire Meadery' on their Chinese dragon series.
In her spare time, Nicole teaches and performs aerial circus and various other forms of performance art. You can contact her for freelance illustration work as well as commissions.
