Thank you for being here!  Thank you for supporting my art!  I'm Raina, a multi-faced artist, "renaissance woman," and all-around compulsive creative.  

My principal art is music - I am a songwriter, a guitarist, a pianist, a singer, an arranger, and I make recordings in my home project studio.  Music is my heart and reason for breathing, and I pour all of me into my compositions. My music is rock, and my lyrics are thoughtful and poetic.  I have 2 musical projects.  My solo work is under Raina Maris and I have no limits to what I'll compose and record.  I also have an alternative hard rock band, RainAfire, and we are rehearsing and recording and gearing up to play live.  I've always wanted to give back the way musicians have given to me - the light at the end of the tunnel, hope when all is hopeless, understanding when misunderstood.  Comfort.  Reason.  The will and fight to go on!  Please check out my YouTube channel here to see what I've put out so far, and if you're a fellow musician, find me on ReverbNation.

I also write poetry, paint pictures, make jewelry and take photographs.  All of this fun stuff can be found on my blog, Love & Shipwrecks.
I'm even writing a young adult novel!  

By helping to support my art, I am able to take the time to create more for you! With your support, I can pay my bills (!!!), upgrade my home studio, and afford the costs of distribution, advertising, printing and music videos.
