Announcement    CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC RESPONSE:
The shop has reopened after the passing of Rakhi's mother, but will have limited stock and longer processing times until June. In addition, due to the current recommendations for social distancing, shipping times may be longer. Rest assured all spaces are disinfected and packages shipped with the utmost care, but package drop off and pick up times are anticipated to be longer as we attempt to minimize the number of trips outside the home and mail service in the Detroit area is functioning at lower capacity due to the outbreak.

I thank you for the continued support of our business, and your patient understanding. If there is an item you wish to see, or you need expedited shipping, please contact me and I will try to accommodate you as best I can.

WELCOME!
Thank you for stopping by! Please take some time to look around and say hello! I hope you’ll leave here feeling refreshed - filled with a little more hope if you’re weary and encouragement if you’re feeling alone. My passion - aside from creating - is spreading a little bit of light into the darkness of our lives, bringing mercy into broken places. Whether that’s through laughter or an inspired Word, I hope you can see that light as you browse.

Thank you again for you support. Every time you shop Rakstar Designs, you support our little family and our mission, and for that we are truly grateful!

Blessings from our family to yours!

About RakstarDesigns

Light the darkness!

"The purpose of art is nothing less than the upliftment of the human spirit.' ~ St. John Paul II

One of the images of my father etched into my memory is of him with a camera around his neck. He was a seasoned amateur, and he loved capturing the moments of our lives, no matter the fuss my mom put up. She hates having her picture taken.

From there, I developed a love of film photography. I loved the mechanics of a camera, the click of the shutter, the accidental effects of double exposure - everything. Sadly, it was not a love that was pursued for a long time as I sought after more gainful education and employment. If I had it to do all over again, I would have definitely indulged my creative side with more formal instruction.

In this station of life, I am aspiring to become a "seasoned amateur" like my dad before me, both in photography and other art forms, primarily digital design, watercolor, and hand-lettering/calligraphy. With the advent of "the YouTube" and online seminars, I am learning as I go, in photography and in other art forms. Rakstar Designs originally began as a photography studio, but has since evolved as my adventures in the creative process ebb and flow their way through time and space.

Thank you for taking the time to see a part of my heart poured out in my work.
