i am SO excited to announce that i’m heading to donna downey’s (is that not the best name ever?) inspired event next year in north carolina. i’m attending as her special guest and keynote speaker – totally excited about not only meeting the one and only donna but also attending a few of the workshops, selling my goods, and soaking in the energy of this retreat. from the moment i discovered her blog, i knew this woman was someone i wanted to meet – i love her enthusiasm, her passion for the creative life and her encouragement to all of us to live out our creative expression. kindred souls, i can feel it. and i’m totally loving her campaign for creativity that she launched recently. have you seen it? how cool is that? if you’re interested in attending inspired (i believe there are a few spots left), then head on over here for all the registration information 🙂

in other news, i am feeling SO much better in heart and spirit as i really focus on slowing down and giving myself the gift of a bit of gentle nurturing. i’ve been going to bed by 10:30pm, waking up a bit earlier, heading out for tea dates with my dog, a little bit of shopping, reading time, and more. seriously, people. rest is working. and spending the week with john who is reminding me in every spare moment how love heals. these weeks have been hard on us but i’m being reminded that when we’re together and in the same space, we are very good at lifting one another up.

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.
