My mission is to create your dream space on the Web. The place where you or your business stands out from the crowd. Where your clients or friends can find you, follow you, and dig what you’re doing. Where they can buy what you’re selling, pin what you are creating or cooking, book your services, and share your expertise. My goal is a site that you love, that will showcase your business or idea, and connect you with your audience.
What does Bellano mean? Well if you hang around you’re sure to notice that I love anything Italian or Italianish (sure that’s a word). But truly Bellano is a street where dreams come true. I’d love to help with your dreams.

I’m Thauna (in case you are wondering the H is silent) and I love playing with colors and fonts, and just plain making things pretty. Bellano Web Studio is the culmination of all that I love; this work is what lights me up and makes my day. The line between work and passion is often blurry for me.
I have a Bachelor’s of Science in IT/Visual Communications and have been designing Web sites for 8+ years. Before making Web design my career it was my hobby, my passion. I started out blogging about my life and my photography, doing a few little projects for friends, and at work. I quickly decided this design thing was what I loved doing. At the time I was in the middle of my bachelor’s program for Human Resources, I switched programs and have never looked back. Making Web Design and Development my career has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I believe in doing what you love, and this is what I love. Before Bellano Web Studio became a full-time business, I worked as a Web Designer/Developer in the finance and higher education fields.
I have had clients around the globe (from Australia to Europe) as well as all across the United States & Canada, across oceans and close to home.
My past clients include photographers, food bloggers, writers, crafters, world-travelers, readers, life & health coaches, niche bloggers of all genres, and small businesses. If you are looking for a Web, Blog, or Logo design send me an email and let’s chat.
When I’m not creating WordPress sites and designing logos:

- I like to read
- I’m obsessed with all things Italian and Italy (visited for the first time in 2013) and I am currently studying Italian
- have a terrible TV addiction (any one want to watch Justified with me?)
- spend as much time as I can with my adorable grandbaby
- I am mom to three mostly grown kids
- I love KISS, since the 6th grade…that’s a long time
- I love purple (and more recently red and poppies)
- and cupcakes
- I’m a Raider fan
- I try to blog and stay connected via social media
