Welcome to Christyl’s Creative Corner!


Welcome to Christyl’s Creative Corner!

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 and if 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. To put in any product requests, please use the contact form in the side menu on this site.

Christyl aka 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.”

Enjoy your visit!

  1. Judging from the pictures I see in the sidebar, this IS a creative corner indeed! I must say I find it inspiring, and I almost feel as though your creativity will rub off on me should I visit your Creative Corner more often. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Stuart – and thank you! I’ve been crocheting since I was about 13, but I didn’t really bother taking photos of any of the things I made, until recently, and because I give most of what I make away to friends and family, I don’t actually have much that I’ve photographed so far, haha. Also, for the past several years, my focus has been on my writing (I was also first published at 15, and you can see what I have up here by navigating through the side menu). I greatly appreciate the comment – my first, I think! – and the support. If I manage to inspire, then I am giving something back, because I get so much inspiration from all over! 😀
