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.
Hi friends, We're settling into quarantine life over here. What strange days, no? Like so many of you, we are figuring out how to homeschool while navigating work/life loads while holding all the uncertainties while cultivating boatloads of hope. ...
Dearest friends, I want to thank you for your continued support through these times when everything seems a bit wobbly and uncertain. We (my family and I) wouldn't thrive without you. And we are grateful. As we collectively navigate our way through all...read more
Hi friends, BIG things are swirling over here and my heart can barely handle the serendipity of it all. I have signed a lease for a sweet little retail space here in my newish (we moved here a year ago!) little town of Sisters, Oregon !! It will be called SoulShine...read more
We've been in our new home for 9 months. So crazy how time unwinds and unfolds, sometimes softly, sometimes in a hurry. And yet, here we are, almost a year into our move to small town Sisters, OR. So many things have quietly transformed over here and the shifts...read more
Do you ever have that feeling like you're at the cusp of something important and beautiful, like you're stepping into the newness of your next chapter? It feels a little tingly, a little precious, a little new, but all so good, sort of like the feeling you have...read more

Slowly but surely I've been changing things up in my business. I've been so inspired by our recent move to a small town to do everything a bit slower, a bit simpler, and one thing at a time (vs the hectic pace from which I used to live). One of the...read more
(Available in small and large sizes > Learn more) Hello friends. So much is happening behind the scenes over here. Sometimes I feel on top of it, and sometimes I have to work really hard to settle my nervous system before I tip over the edge into The Land of...read more
(Available in small and large sizes!) I have learned so much these last many years about how to release the hustle energy and trade it in for something that feels softer, more beautiful. I’m not trading in impact. I’m just trading out intensity at the expense of my...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!)
