ABOUT BETHANY HISSONG

    • Originally from Cincinnati, I’ve been designing & illustrating for over 25 years, for clients large and small. My degree is from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture & Planning. I’ve worked for a division of Bates Advertising in their creative department as a technical artist and illustrator on accounts such as Wendy’s and The State of Ohio Governor’s Office. I have also worked for a small Christian publisher as a designer/illustrator for book covers and various illustration jobs. I also have my degree in Art Education and have taught in public, private, and charter schools. My freelance work has spanned my whole professional life. My focus now is on children’s book illustration which has been my dream since I was four years old! I’m also a mom to two great kids in college who I consider to be my greatest accomplishment!

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I try to bring warmth and familiarity to my illustrations which celebrate the family and the innocence and fun of childhood. I use a combination of traditional media to draw with and digital processing for texture and color.
