Welcome to Christyl’s Velvet Heart
This site is the official website for the creative works of Christyl – aka Chrissy Lorraine. This site is dedicated to showcasing the products of Christyl’s visual art as well as crochet, sewing, and other crafts. When an Etsy store is created, this is the place where the links to each of the products will be – for those who want to order. Please use the menu to the left to navigate the site. The menus and other things will be changing as the site is built.
Chrissy Lorraine is also a writer who has several pieces published in various books, magazines, and journals, as well as one self-published children’s book. Most of her work is published under various pen names, which she has used to separate the genres of her writing. Her pen name, “Amarine Rose Ravenwood,” is for feminine poetry. “Mina Marial Nicoli” is for children’s fantasy stories and whimsical poetry. “Saoirse Fae” is for fairy tales and fairy tale poetry. “Phoebe Grant” is for light-hearted mock-horror, such as dark fairy tales. Her artwork is all signed “Lorraina” (a phonetic spelling of her name). In these ways, she separates all of her work into their own categories and fields. She even had a couple of poems published by her college Literary Arts Journal, riverrun, under her old nickname of “Nina.”
