About the author (2010)

Lynn Koolish lives a color-filled life in Berkeley, California, where she dyes fabric and makes quilts and other fiber art. She loves all the colors, so she can never decide what her favorite color is. As long as it's bright, she's happy. Sometimes she even dyes her hair purple. Lynn shares her love of color with others by teaching fabric-dyeing classes.
