The Red Barn Studio was the working studio of professional artist and craftsman Lester Raymer (1907-1991). The studio is filled with Raymer’s art and handiwork, from paintings and prints to ceramics and metalwork, from woodcarving to stitchery, furniture and jewelry. His work is influenced by his love for the world’s great painters (especially the Spanish masters), the Southwest and Mexico, religious symbolism and folk art.

Each year, Raymer created a special Christmas gift for his wife, Ramona. These gifts included painted boxes, candlesticks and other decorative items. In 1960 Lester began the tradition of making toys every Christmas for Ramona. He made 53 toys over a period of 30 years.

Much of Lester Raymer’s art and craftwork, including the Red Barn Studio, was made from recycled materials. Raymer took ordinary things, generally discarded, mundane objects, and transformed them into beautiful works of art and crafts, gifts, toys, and decorative elements for the studio.
