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.

There is something heart warming 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.

Let’s be the change

With so much pain and suffering in the world, I want my art to be a force for change. So a portion of each sale in 2017 will go to three charities. You can help choose these charities by voting for your favorite by going to the poll I set up over on the Ravenna Relics blog. This poll will help you decide which charities will benefit from your purchases in this shop. You can share the blog post to help your favorite charity win.

And please feel free to drop by the charities’ websites and give them some love, and perhaps a donation.
