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, 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,...

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
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. ...read more
Hi friends, While we are all in quarantine, I wanted to offer up these goodies for you - some FREE, and others under a Pay What You Can model (including my painting courses that I'm bringing out of retirement for now). I hope it helps. Let's support one...read more
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
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!)
