About

Lisa Johnston Hancock at her home studio.

Hi! My name is Lisa. I’m an illustrator & studio artist who’s work has found a home in children’s books, art galleries and private collections. I use traditional materials such as watercolor, ink & gouache mixed with a dash of digital.  When I’m not creating artwork for clients, I teach art lessons privately & through workshops. I have a B. F. A. from the University of Alabama & an M. F. A. from the Savannah College of Art & Design. I also like to stay involved in my community as President of the Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society of Mobile & member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. My current picture book project is Sophie’s New Song, written by Michelle Whitfield and Yellow Speckled Blackbird, written by Dylan Pritchett is soon to be published by Maclaren-Cochrane Publishing. I enjoy creating work that focuses on ecology and environmental education, encouraging a lifelong positive attitude toward the natural world. Oh and I also have an Etsy shop where you can purchase original watercolors and Giclee prints. www.etsy.com/shop/LisaJHancockArt

My husband & I (plus two kiddos & 5 fish)  currently reside in Southern Alabama & are gearing up to make the big move to Southern California in January! I would love any suggestions that you may have for fun things to do. Especially anything involving animals, furry, feathered or scaly.

For inquiries regarding commissions, questions or fun things to do in California, please email me at ljhancock.artist@gmail.com.
