Rhia R. Drouillard grew up in Eastern Oregon but with strong ties to her German/PA Dutch ancestry. She moved to Washington State in the early 1990's. However, she claims she never felt as at home as she does since relocating to the beautiful Western Washington coast.
Rhia recently finished her first children's book and is working on the second book of the trilogy. An accomplished photographer, she is expanding her photographic portfolio in preparation for her first art book which will showcase her scenic photographs. She said to expect several showings and book signings which will be scheduled with the release tour, sometime late in 2013.
Rhia says she loves to experience new things in life. Her next adventure is to build her own, Tumbleweed home (an 18', two-story house on wheels). She says this will allow her to spend a reasonable amount of time in each area she photographs. She expects to do a year-long photographic expedition in Alaska within the next five years.
She currently lives in Forks, WA (of the Twilight series fame) with her service dog, Kodi. Rhia has four grown children and 2.5 grandchildren.
