True Love

A throwback to the best decision ever. True is eight years old. Today he said, “Mom, you know those guys in the movies that arrive out of nowhere to help people when they’re being bullied and then they disappear after helping? Yeah, I’m that kind of...

The Great Mystery of Being a Mom

I received a question earlier this week about what I do when my mama heart breaks. I loved the question and I don’t think we’re talking enough about it. True is on the edge of 8 years old (this was a photo of us when he was 3 weeks old), and though my mama...

He is a bright, stunning, radiant light in my world

This child. Did I ever tell you that we had his natal chart read by my favorite astrologer ever (Carol Ferris – google her!)? I highly recommend chart readings for families. It’s a great parenting tool and it’s also a great way to see all the ways in...

Lately, we’ve been reading together in the hammock. I treasure the side-by-sideness, his growing bare legs folded over mine, the quiet togetherness. True is into graphic novels and fact books about baseball (we all watched the Sandlot recently and this has him...

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.
