Kelly Rae Roberts is in the HOUSE!
Kelly Rae Roberts Artist, Author, Possibilitarian! This gal is on fire and has taken the art world by storm. A native Floridian, now living in Oregon with her family. It was there that kelly eventually decided to take up running which mysteriously led her to discover the confidence and passion to pursue a longtime “impractical” dream: to become an artist. Since discovering her passion for painting, Kelly has written a book...Taking Flight: Inspiration + Techniques to Give Your Creative Spirit Wings, a best seller that encompasses all aspects of what it means to live the creative life. Kelly's work expresses honesty and tenderness while remaining lighthearted and colorful. It invokes a sense of vitality within people to walk their own path in life, and inspires others to discover their own limitlessness. We are excited to now carry her work in-gallery and hope you will come take a peek when time allows.
