The colors used in this painting print of an octopus are gorgeous. This print regardless of its size would make a person stop and stare. The artist, Nicole Hanusek, did a wonderful job bringing this octopus to life. I’m happy that I found and purchased this print. It was efficiently packaged and shipped so that it arrived in good order and time. I would purchase from this merchant again.

Love the Raccoon Art picture from you. I also have Raccoons in my yard and they show up every night for food. I have as many as 27 most of them babies, so cute and funny. The picture is very well captured of the masked bandits, beautiful colors. It looks very realistic . Thank you Nicole.

This piece is even more lovely in person, and very personal to me without any previous contact between myself and the artist. I can highly recommend supporting this artist.

I ordered one for my best friend as it's our favorite animals together and when it arrived I just had to have one for myself as well! Even cuter in person (though it's hard to imagine). I can't wait to gift her out matching best friend pictures. Thank you so much!
Most of my artwork is influenced by my love of children's books, comic books and fantasy art. In my portfolio you'll find black and white line drawings, colorful paintings in acrylic and watercolor, and my new favorite, abstract octopuses.
I struggled for a long time trying to find my "thing" in art and I have finally found it in the abstract octopuses. What I discovered while painting the first one was that I didn't have to make it look exactly like the image. I always put these rules on myself, the accurate police were going to come and compare my art to the photo reference and if it wasn't exact I would fail. These octopuses break that rule. I have so much fun when I'm painting them and each time I do a new one I'm thinking about what I want to try with the next one.
Embracing that kind of joy is why I became an artist. When I was ten, I started drawing mermaids. I obsessed over it, and came up with clean two- and three-color palettes. By the time I was in seventh grade, the Little Mermaid was everywhere and when I drew her for myself, I felt the connection and I knew that I wanted be an artist. I dedicated myself to art in high school, and went off to the Savannah College of Art and Design. After a year, I came back to my native Ohio and transferred to the Cleveland Institute of Art and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration in 2000. I’ve been working as a professional artist and designer since.
I’ve always been able to make a faithful version of the original picture, but the joy in it for me isn’t in the purely technical. It’s in creating my own interpretation of that still moment.
