About

Lisa Johnston Hancock at her home studio.

Hi! I am Lisa Johnston Hancock a visual artist, freelance illustrator and art educator formally trained in the arts with a B. F. A. from the University of Alabama and an M. F. A. from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I am a member of the Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society of Mobile, The Bay Area Art Educators Society and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. I recently illustrated my first picture book “The Yellow-Speckled Black Bird,” written by Dylan Pritchett and published by Maclaren-Cochrane Publishing (publication date TBA). I enjoy creating work that focuses on environmental education, encouraging a lifelong positive attitude toward the natural world.

I teach adult art classes and workshops during the fall, winter and spring and children’s summer art classes at the Mobile Museum of Art. Please take a look at my Classes & Workshops page for updates on my class schedule. I exhibit my paintings on a regular basis, work by commission and have an Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/LisaJHancockArt where you can purchase original watercolors and prints.
