Studio artist specializing in custom watercolors and illustration..
Lisa Johnston Hancock received her B.F.A. from the University of Alabama and studied a summer abroad through the New York University program in Madrid, Spain. While in Madrid, she spent most of her time face to face with paintings by the great masters like Velazquez, Goya, Titian and El Greco at the Museo del Prado. The Romantics’ aesthetic focus on the sublimity and beauty of nature continues to serve as a source of inspiration. Several years later, Hancock obtained her M.F.A. in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. After graduation in 2006, she exhibited her work at the Mobile Museum of Art and assisted in curating Generation X: Post Boomers of the South. In 2016 Hancock was awarded Chalk Champ at the LODA Squares Sidewalk Art Competition. She has participated in numerous juried and solo shows, including the International Juried Exhibition at One Fine Art Gallery in Chicago, IL. Hancock is a member of the Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society of Mobile and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Currently she is in the process of seeking publication for Night Owl, a children’s story that she illustrated in collaboration with writer and photographer, Meggan Haller. Hancock lives and works in Mobile, AL. When she is not painting, you can find her looking for new places to explore with her husband and two very energetic children.
