Welcome to the Studio!

I love to greet everyone visiting the studio in person or during a workshop or live streams this way. I welcome you into my happy place where I hope you will feel joy and have a smile on your face. This is how I feel when I am in my studio creating and immersing myself into the “zone”.

What People Are Saying About Red Raspberry Studios

I am so excited to have my very own Whimsical Lady!! Barbi created her for me and I think she is perfect!! She captured my flowing hair, love of the beach and I can wait to see her every day when I’m working in my office.

We have worked together on a number of projects including logo design, print design for tea towels, and coming this Fall, another design for new products exclusive to Mint & Honey. I can’t say enough about the wonderful collaboration with @redraspberrystudios except those few words: we keep going back for more! ?

The uniquely talented Barbi Defazio of

Red Raspberry Studios created this awesome illustration. I wanted a playful and fun way to personalize Happy New Year and Thank You cards.
I highly recommend Barbi for any of your illustration needs. She's creative, fun to work with, and very reliable. And, she's a local Ottawa-based artist.
