Lorraine is constantly inspired by the beauty of the natural world. Nothing makes her happier than balancing with one foot on the edge of a hiking trail, attempting to get the curve of a river *just* right in burnt sienna on a fresh white painting panel.

After fifteen years as a classroom teacher in the Pacific Northwest and Brazil, with short stints in Korea and Taiwan, Lorraine now divides her time between her writing and painting, when she’s not knitting, cooking, gardening or playing the drums. She lives near Seattle with her husband, son, daughter, dog, cat and several dozen trees. Lorraine has degrees in history, education, and music from Whitworth University and a Master of Education from the University of Washington.
