I truly cannot remember a time that I've ever been outside this much. Back in Portland, I was more homebound, which was okay as I loved our home very much. But I didn't get outside much. I had less time to roam and when I did, I resisted the commutes and the crowds....read more
I'm enjoying working on this new dress series. I love the idea of the feminie imagery with the strong declarations of her spirit. This one is about her journey to remain Open. It's for women whose hearts continue to open the more she's willing to listen to the quiet...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.
