So detailed that it makes your mind wander to those moon lite nights that make us all dream.

Absolutely loved my custom wall hanging! Shop owner was very sweet and worked with my custom idea of a shell painting! Quick shipping! Would recommend this shop to others for sure!

The Story Behind the House

In 2008, Claire moved to Hawaii for two years and there she was inspired to share her artwork with the world! Who wouldn't be inspired--it's Hawaii after all!

Claire has always had a passion for art (props to her artsy family), and has always dreamed of making art for a living. From this artistic passion and Hawaiian inspiration, The House of Raj & Red was born.

What's in the name and slogan, you ask?

The Slogan: Recycle. Repurpose. ReLOVE. Claire feels very strongly about inspiring change in the way we treat our environment and the animals we share it with. She believes she can raise awareness by taking "junk", like an old pallet that has just been cast aside as garbage, and transform it into a work of art that you'd welcome into your home.

Claire is also a dog-lover. Much like an old pallet, many shelter dogs have just been cast aside and are unwanted. Claire feels very strongly about adopting rescue dogs, and giving them the (Re)LOVE they deserve.

Her own rescue dogs, Raja ("Raj") & Ziggy (a Red-Boned Coon Hound, hence the "Red") are a HUGE part of her life and her family, hence the name, "The House of Raj & Red."

    You could say Claire was born with a paintbrush in hand. From the days of spending hours chalking up the entire sidewalk, to selling bookmarks she designed herself for 10 cents in elementary school, it's been nothing but love.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please remember that all items from The House of Raj & Red are hand-painted, so no two will be exactly the same. But that's the beauty of art!

Please note: for made-to-order items made from pallets, there may be a very minimal difference in the specifics of the listing and the final product. Each piece of wood from the pallets has different marks and imperfections, which make each piece unique and in my mind, beautiful!
