There’s lots to explore here
There is nearly 15 years of blog content, detailing my life from social worker to artist to entrepreneur and all the living in between (Motherhood! Self-care! Home + Studio Tours! And more!) – plus art, offerings, and lots and lots of love.
If you’re new to my online world — or maybe an old friend, coming ’round to say hello again — above are a few categories to help you find your way.
Enjoy it all to the fullest. I’m so glad you’re here.
Hello, magnets! These beauties are in stock and ready for fridges or just about anywhere a bit of inspiration is needed. Even better? They're all lovingly designed and made in the U.S.A. I'm loving how they turned out. Thank you again for all the...
I've been cultivating my joy lately by Taking My Time, which is such good soul learning (and unlearning) for me. Summer is here and it's a beautiful invitation to do what I'm always craving: slower everything, being present, practicing the art of living a full,...read more
Friends! Do you recognize this kitchen? So fun to have our home featured on the cover of Oregon Home Magazine as well as a lovely article written by Emily Grosvenor called "The Art Of Relocation" about why we left the city for small town Sisters, Oregon. So fun. We...read more
John turned 46 years young last month. To celebrate, we snuggled into a little cabin along the gorgeous Metolius River. We ate, wandered along the river, listened to music (Bob Dylan mostly), watched movies (Have you seen the Beastie Boys documentary? So...read more
I've decided to offer up embroidered patches and I'm crazy in love with how they've turned out. 100% embroidered. 1000% perfect for bags, jean jackets, and more. I'm putting mine on my overalls. Lovingly designed, created, and made in the US, too! Thank you for...read more
Dear friends, The last couple of weeks have been tough. Last week, after the murders of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, John and I sat True (9 yrs old) down and had a conversation with him about what is happening in the US. We told him about the murder of George Floyd...read more
Hello, sticker joy!! I can't tell you how fun it was to make some of my work into stickers! This has been on my list to do for so long, and I'm thrilled to finally make it happen. Even better? All the stickers are water/weatherproof and resistant to fading,...read more
Hello from here where quarantine life is settling in. There have been some hard days, some good days. I've been reminding myself that it all matters. There is beauty in the mess, and there is also just mess in the mess, too. It's all ok. (prints...read more
For as long as I've been making art and telling my stories online (circa 2006!), it's been important to me to tell them honestly. I have a strong value on being brave in times of celebration (not playing small, dimming my/your light) as well as being brave in...read more
Hi friends, What a full life and time over here. Like so many of you, John and I are falling into a totally new rhythm that supports work and homeschooling. It's full, yet we are being super gentle on ourselves along the way. I am so grateful that we...read more
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.
Let's be friends on Instagram (I love it there!)
