About

Lisa Johnston Hancock at her home studio.

Hi, I’m Lisa. An illustrator & studio artist whose work has found a home in children’s books, art galleries and private collections. I enjoy creating work that focuses on ecology and environmental education, encouraging a lifelong positive attitude toward the natural world. When working, I use watercolor, ink, gouache & digital media to achieve the desired effects.  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 here https://www.amazon.com/Yellow-Speckled-Blackbird-Dylan-Pritchett/ 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. www.etsy.com/shop/LisaJHancockArt

My husband & I (plus two kiddos) just made a big move from sunny Southern Alabama to sunny Southern California! I would love to connect through Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. You can find the links at the bottom of the page.
