Love where I work. #gadsby #thepearl and its a gorgeous day. Ahhh!

So, remember early last year when I moved into a brand new studio? It was my first full studio (creative space and office space) outside of my home and having that division between work and home seemed to be a golden, beautiful ticket for me when it came to balance and really being present either at home, or at work. But here’s the thing. After a year of working in that space, I got a little lonely, especially during the rainy months (all 6-8 months of them!). I was alone in a not-so-sunny studio about 25-30 hours/week.

Because I deeply believe nothing is permanent and we can create what we most need (even if, say, we’ve barely broken in a new space!), I began to create a new vision for my work life that involved less loneliness and more natural light. I put out a call. To my heart. To the universe. To my circle of friends. It took about 6 months to manifest and come together, but I’m happy to report that I am in the midst of moving studios! It’s in the same building as my last one, but up on the top floor in a huge space with a big window facing West and big beautiful skylight that shines light in all day long.

More natural light? Check. Next up: loneliness.

I have always carried a dream of working with other creative women under one roof. I love the idea of having co-workers who not only understand the unique challenges that come with being an artist, but also the unique challenges that come with raising a business while raising a family. I’m a tribe minded kind of girl, after all. And so it will be that I will be sharing this big, gorgeous, sun-filled space with three other creative women.

There will be workshops, gatherings, open houses, art openings, and lots of community building in this space. It’s a space to grow in, create in, write in, gathering in, work in, live in. I’m deeply excited and it all feels just right.

Tackling this side of #soulshinestudio today. I have my work cut out for me! Live this part, though.

More soon! For now, we are unpacking and beautifying the space. Wish us luck, friends! For more photos as it all unfolds, come on over to FB or instagram

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.

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
