With Art in Motion, I share the visual journey through the life of one of my paintings — from the blank canvas, to the first splash of inspiration, all the way to the finished piece. Enjoy to the fullest!

This healing angel is for those of us who are in transition, on the edge of one way of being in the world to another. Who perhaps are struggling and working our way through grief, old and new. Who understand that healing can make it through the tiniest of cracks in the dimmest of days. Who are inspired by all the ways that hope and healing show up in our beautifully messy, complicated stories. Who believe every word on the Be Brave Manifesto. 

This one is for all of us . We are not broken, friends. We are meant to be on healing journeys. It’s our soul work. It’s why we’re here, ultimately in this journey. This I believe with my whole heart.

So.

Here’s to hope and healing.

XO,

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed. Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore their creativity, nourish their souls and build a thriving creative business.

Hi friends! I've been quiet over here. I think I've been relishing the spaciousness that has come with this new season of life (moving to a small town, getting off of social media, simplifying life and business), and just giving myself lots of permission to settle in...
