Raee Lorton is a Pasadena based illustrator and the owner/designer of Crag To Crux (C2C), a female focused brand that creates stickers, pins, and apparel inspired by the rock climbing community. Her style is a blend of abstract, nuanced Americana and incorporates elements of vintage pin-up designs to represent strength and femininity.
Combining her artistic prowess with her background in environmental science, Raee aims to use Crag to Crux as a platform to advance the discussion on mental health awareness. By working with non-profits and other climbing brands, she also hopes that C2C can help to create more sustainable climbing products, provide for crag/park restoration, and raise awareness for the protection of climbing landscapes.
