How I Began
I've always been pretty crafty and as a kid I remember always getting in trouble for taking my dads electronics apart. I figured one day that would come in handy and here I am today, blending style with creativity and coming up with some pretty cool creations. I hope you enjoy my products in your home, because its hard for me to part with most of them!
Raphael Creations originated in 2011. With a 25 year career in the entertainment industry, Artist and Cinematographer Lisa Raphael took her love of filmmaking and music and turned it into a passion for lighting and repurposing. She began creating functional art out of nonworking vintage materials. Lisa is currently a featured artist with Hammer and Nails Men's Salons. Her love of music has led her to create lighted art pieces from discarded musical instruments. Everything from vintage microphones, flutes, clarinets, and pianos, to her most popular guitar lamps.
