Announcement    HOLIDAY NOTICE: Last day to place orders for Christmas delivery is December 15th.

Thank you so much for visiting Rakstar Designs. We will be slowing down to be able to spend time enjoying the holiday break with our family. The shop will be open, but after December 15, items may not ship until after Christmas.

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.

New to the shop Spring 2018 is my Mercy Project Line. All these products give back to different causes and families who are struggling. If you’re looking to pay it forward while you shop, I hope you’ll find a way through this line!

Also new - each quarter of 2019, 10% of all profits from standard items will be donated to a different organization. Look here to see which organizations have been selected, or drop me a note to make a suggestion! 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!

Happy holidays from our family to yours!

About

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.
