about bellano web studio

Welcome to Bellano Web Studio! Specializing in custom WordPress designs using the Genesis Framework and creating beautiful online places. I am proud to be a Genesis Recommended Developer.

My purpose 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. Share whatever it is that makes your day brighter. 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.

Meet your Designer

About Bellano Web StudioI’m Thauna (in case you are wondering the H is silent) and I love designing for the Web. Bellano Web Studio is the culmination of all that I love; this work is what lights me up and makes my day.

I have a Bachelor’s of Science in IT/Visual Communications and have been designing Web sites for 7+ 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 making the Web more beautiful is what I love. Before Bellano Web Studio became a full-time business, I worked as a Web Designer/Developer in banking 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 or close to home…friends and strangers alike.

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.

  • 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 am an affiliate for Studiopress. Which means if you purchase Genesis or one of the child themes by using one of my links provided one this site, I receive a small percentage. It’s doesn’t pay the rent or anything, but maybe I’ll get to buy an extra latte. You may find other affliate links for other companies on my site as well. I only sign up for affliate programs for products or services that I believe in and have used.
