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.
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...
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
Hi friends! I thought I'd give you a tour of our kitchen! The only other room tour that I've done of this new home is our living room, which you can find right here. We've been in our new home and town (Sisters, Oregon) for about 6 months now and as time...read more
Hi dear friends, After 7 days of the #wearyourjoy challenge over on Instagram (which, by the way, was so fun!), many of you have asked where I shop, where I find my accessories and more. Good news! I have rounded up all sorts of goodness for you, including some...read more

A few things I want to remember from the last couple of weeks: Celebrating the arrival of Autumn by marveling at the red leaves on our brand newbie trees in our front yard. I'm looking forward to watching them grow and root just as we, having moved here this...read more
Weekend plans: Creating a schedule for the week that supports wellness (walks in nature, yoga, smoothies, juicing, downtime/space to integrate/process a very full life, tiny bit of gardening), family (school activities, birthday fun for True's 9th!), and creative biz....read more
After a full month of traveling to CA to teach and then to NYC for Gudrun ambassador fun, I am home. HOME. There's something about flying in/out of new-to-me airports and returning to a newish home/town that has me feeling more deeply rooted here. Autumn is...read more
FRIENDS! I'm squealing on the inside about this. I'll be in at the Gudrun NYC store THIS SATURDAY for a delightful Meet & Greet. I'll be there with my dear friend, Rachel Awes who will be selling her amazing books (I'm bringing prints and originals...read more
(I'm wearing a dress and paints from my favorite, Gudrun) I've been celebrating over here the last couple of days. So much goodness happening in life and in biz. And my heart is full to the brim. I'm a firm believer in celebrating allllll the things - the micro...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!)
