Lorine joined Signal after getting her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon. She specializes in how architecture can play a critical role in community storytelling through mixed media and tactile objects. She is an advocate for climate positive futures and living by those standards with cradle-to-cradle practices. This includes reinventing “waste” products, learning and teaching environmental principles, and researching material sourcing and life cycles. While working with Landscape4Humanity Lorine designed environmental solutions that addressed food, water, and energy equity in urban agricultural systems. Her combined interest in alternative and natural building systems has inspired her to one day grow, harvest, and build her own sustainable straw bale constructed home. Lorine’s current crafting endeavors include knitting, sewing, rug making, and crafting jewelry.
