She took flight into a life filled with peace, grace, joy, and light. This is a newish piece for me and also my wish for all of us, wherever we may be. There is always room for expansion, for light, and for wings. Always, wings.

“The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new places, but in seeing with new eyes.” – Marcel Proust

I’ve been thinking about my own various flights lately. I think of them as seasons, really.  A few years ago (has it already been 8 years?), I took flight into a season of possibility, learning to paint and become a full time artist. This particular flight has been long, high, weathered with so many learning curves, but also exhilarating, like any first flight.  Since then, and since all the other flights – becoming a mom, growing in my marriage, growing as a woman – I’ve discovered how some seasons and flights are not about flying at all, but rather about growing our wings on the ground while being still, discovering within ourselves that we are already capable, graceful, joyful, light, and free.

This has been a great lesson for me. That flying is not necessarily about where I’m heading, or if I’m heading anywhere, but how I see where I am now. How I see myself. How I see the importance of being grounded by grace. How I’m cultivating and nurturing my wings, my freedom of spirit. I am more at peace than I have ever been. I am so thankful for it, so grateful for the teachings and the lessons – both in the air and on the ground.

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...
