I am a graphic designer with over 20 years of experience. I live in Toronto with my partner Rudy and we have a baby named Rumi. Some other cities I've called home: Manila, Southern California, Vancouver, BC, Brooklyn, San Francisco, – even Paris (for a month). I lived and worked in Brooklyn, New York for twelve years before coming to Toronto in 2011. I believe great design is borderless. I'm also a voracious photographer and major food enthusiast.

About Raya Goods
I was bursting with creative ideas while pregnant with my baby. I was inspired to make art for him before he was even born. It was a recent design project that finally had me thinking: why only create for Rumi? Why not make my work available to everyone? It was something I always wanted to do. That was when RAYA GOODS was born. The word ‘RAYA’ in Tagalog/Spanish means drawn/printed line or stripe.
My illustration styles are intended to be gender-neutral.
I hope you enjoy!
My illustrations are hand silkscreened right in Toronto on American Apparel brand baby rib onesies and Canadian made Rabbit Skins t-shirts. They are 100% cotton (all Heather Grey onesies contains 10% Polyester). For lasting results, wash inside out and skip the dryer.
