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.

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

I've been having such a good time in my newish studio lately. I've been experimenting, trying new paints and materials, and generally trying to STAY OUT OF MY OWN WAY. That's the trick, no? To stay out of our own ways so that intuitive, free, FUN painting...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!)
