Ravenna Relics About Page
The Artist, Althea Rizzo
Hello, and thanks for stopping by to learn more about this small shop. I have always loved history. Spending time reading and learning about how other people lives, loved, died and left a lasting legacy in the long ago.

My paintings evoke the spirit of these ancient artists. Using modern digital collage methods, I put my watercolor and gouache paintings onto apparel, ceramic mug, and canvas totes. I’ll expand into other merchandise as the business grows.

I started my first graphic t-shirt shop with the express purpose of paying off my student loans faster. I was able to retire two small loans over the last couple of years with my geeky designs. So, Yay!

What I found was that the previous shop was too restrictive and frankly, pretty low wage for the amount of time I was putting it into it. Don’t get me wrong, I love having people around the world wearing my more geeky punny science designs but as I was putting in so much time, I might as well make more money while having more control of my shop. And when I started painting again, things just clicked and this new endeavor was born. It is a true work of love. Love of art, love of history, and love of sharing my small creativity with you.

So take some time and look around the shop. Let me know what you think of the art and designs, the quality of the clothes, how you would wear it, share it on social media to help spread the world.

I love history.
I love beautiful art.
I love seeing you wear my art history inspired designs and totally rocking the look.

How do you wear history?
How do you wear art?

There is something heartwarming about knowing that people want to wear art that I created. It brightens my day and makes me very happy. So, please drop me a line on Facebook or on Instagram to let me know what you think. Do you have a favorite time from history? Let me know and maybe I’ll paint up something from that time or culture for a future line of designs.
