Lynn McClain’s watercolors and fiber banners capture the beautiful spirits found in nature with a dollop of whimsy.

In addition to her studio work, she has illustrated seven children’s books for Hathaway Books, which are based on classic fairy tales.

“I work in watercolor and colored pencils. Animal illustration is my favorite, and it is always my intention to honor the integrity of the creatures. I have loved illustration since my own childhood, and am happy to have been chosen to illuminate time-honored stories.”

After developing an award-winning career in Dallas, Lynn moved to Vashon Island with her husband, Ron and their Maine Coon, Ivy. Since arriving on Vashon, their family has expanded to include two white German Shepherds, Puca and Sara.
