Welcome to the Studio!

Welcome to the Studio!

By Rachel A. Zimmerman

Greetings, fellow day dreamers and seekers of magic!

As a passionate multimedia queer artist, designer, and dedicated vegan and advocate of eco-friendliness, it is my distinct pleasure to extend to you an invitation to this refined corner of the digital landscape. I’ve been on a whirlwind journey that's taken me from coast to coast, dabbling in all things artistic. I’ve done everything from theatre and film design to multimedia art and graphic design.

I was living my best New York life, working as a theatre designer and part-time at a trapeze school, when the pandemic hit like a curveball I never saw coming. Theatre was one of the first things in New York to shut down so, like many others I know, I was out of work. Then everything else started shutting down too.

So, there I was, with time on my hands and a creative itch that needed scratching. And what's an artist to do when the world throws lemons your way? You take the lemons and cut them in half, dip them in paint, and make a lemon print...obviously. But in general, you make art – and lots of it! Every day became a canvas, a chance to channel my thoughts, emotions, and sheer determination into creating something beautiful out of the chaos.

Not only did this artistic therapy keep me sane (well, mostly), but it also birthed a treasure trove of creations that I'm beyond excited to share with you. Cue the grand entrance of my brainchild: this fantastic website! Crafted with love and fueled by late-night inspiration, this space is where my art gets to cozy up in your hands.

Now, let's talk shop. In the studio, you'll find a collection of art prints that are ready to add a splash of fun to your world. But wait, there's more! We're talking merchandise – the cool kind. Think t-shirts that double as wearable art, mugs that make your morning coffee a masterpiece, tote bags that flaunt your style, and postcards that I like to call paper hugs.

But that's not all. If you're craving something custom-made, I've got you covered. Imagine having your very own custom art piece, lovingly designed by yours truly? We'll chat, brainstorm, and collaborate to create the art that's living in your imagination.

I also really like to explore which is why I hid a secret collection somewhere in the Studio for you to find. The treasures inside are always changing and you never know what you will discover. 

And here's the thing – none of this would be possible without you. Your support is like the secret sauce that gives my creativity wings. Seriously, it means more than I can put into words. And guess what? The creative journey is far from over. In fact, it's just getting started!

Come with me on my artistic journey by subscribing to the newsletter at the bottom of the homepage. Also, please follow me on Insta (@raz_design_studio), where I'm dishing out art and inspiration.

So, there you have it – the scoop on how this artistic adventure went from a pandemic pick-me-up to a full-blown creative whirlwind. Thanks for being part of the ride, and I can't wait to see where this colorful journey takes us next. Stay awesome, stay inspired.
