The sweet gift of amazement from a barista

  Recently, I was ordering my usual oat milk mocha at my favorite coffee shop when the young man at the counter, a barista, casually asked, "Whatcha doing today?" I shrugged my shoulders and answered, "Not much, just a little work." "Oh, cool," he said. "What do...

On midlife, becoming, emerging

  The snow came this week, falling gently and creating a soft, white, wonder. I've been waking up to its bright white invitations to create beauty, to make a cup of tea, to read, to snuggle in.   I've been full of thoughts lately. So. Many. Thoughts. Much of...

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

(me, age 35) There's been a creative project that I've been resisting. It's one of those projects that looms large, my brain making up stories about it that loom even larger:  You don't have time. It's too massive of a project. Why bother.   For years now, the...

  Autumn has arrived here in Sisters, Oregon, and my heart is so happy about it. Crisp air. Red leaves. Earlier sunsets. I've noticed a little shift in my perspective. A little lift in my spirits. And a little (much needed) bounce in my step. Last Autumn, we were...

Join me on a tour of our guest room

Our guest room! Who wants to come visit? In truth, I sleep in here most nights with the windows open. Bliss.     🛏 After years of not sleeping well with my love (we have different sleep schedules, etc), I discovered sleeping alone works best for me. Took me...

Hello + welcome!

Hey there, I’m Kelly Rae Roberts

Before I was an artist, I was a social worker. And then at the age of 30, I started playing with paint, and everything about my life changed. Today I’m passionate about making meaningful art while helping other women explore their creativity, nourish their souls, and build thriving creative businesses.

I live in a tiny town named Sisters, Oregon with my husband John, our son True, and our two English Bulldogs, Lulu Butter Butterbean and Amelia Apple Bottoms. I deeply believe that anything is possible, one small and brave step at a time.
