About

Lisa Johnston Hancock at her home studio.

Hi! My name is Lisa. I’m an illustrator whose work has found a home in children’s books, art galleries and private collections. I use traditional materials such as watercolor, ink & gouache as well as my trusty iPad and photoshop. My inspiration comes from the beauty of nature, Mexican folk art and vintage illustrations. I hope to encourage a lifelong positive attitude toward the natural world, through my artwork.

 I have a B. F. A. from the University of Alabama & an M. F. A. from the Savannah College of Art & Design & have taught in higher ed for roughly 10 years, privately for 15. I also like to stay involved in my community through gallery shows and as an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. My most recent picture book project was Sophie’s New Song, written by Michelle Whitfield and Yellow Speckled Blackbird, written by Dylan Pritchett was published by Maclaren-Cochrane Publishing, February 2020. You can purchase your copy at any online book retailer, see the list on goodreads.com https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51141153-yellow-speckled-blackbird or at The Haunted Bookshop in Mobile, AL if you are local to the area and they ship!

I also have an Etsy shop where you can purchase original watercolors and Giclee prints. https://www.etsy.com/shop/LisaJohnstonHancock
