About

Lisa Johnston Hancock at her home studio.

I’m Lisa, an illustrator whose work has found a home in children’s books and private collections. As a child I enjoyed exploring our family land in Alabama, identifying every creature that I would come into contact with. I have enjoyed sharing this love of nature and science with my own two children. My inspiration comes from the beauty of nature, Mexican folk art and vintage illustrations. I work in procreate and photoshop blending traditional and digital elements. My appreciation for nature has continued throughout my life and I hope to encourage a positive attitude toward the natural world, through my artwork.

 I have a B. F. A. from the University of Alabama and an M. F. A. from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I like to stay involved in my community through gallery shows, teaching workshops 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
