Kelly Rae Roberts has been inspiring me for a few years. I found one of her canvases at a local boutique in Pewaukee, WI called Harvest Home and was instantly intrigued by her unique style. I looked on the back of the canvas and found her name, looked her up online and ordered her book immediately.
Ever since then, I've been so inspired and encouraged by her life and her art. I even e-mailed her telling her my story of wanting to listen to my "whispers" to begin creating art (since it was a dream of mine since being a little girl). I was shocked and thrilled that she e-mailed me back. A woman with a published book actually personally responded to me!!! I printed that e-mail out and saved it. She gave me a few suggestions and I took them. I haven't turned back since. I have an etsy shop, a blog and do a few local art shows a year--all because she gently suggested I do so. I would have NEVER done any of those on my own. So I thank Kelly Rae Roberts for being a huge inspiration to me.
Now I am taking her on line class Flying Lessons and am thrilled to hear her advice and stories as well as my fellow classmates' advice and stories. I'm truly grateful that she is willing to share her "secrets to success."
Another inpsiration that keeps me and my dream alive is this quote from Henry James:
"It's time to start living the life you've imagined."
