Truth To Paper
you need poetry. Really, you do.


Kate Nicholson and Rachel Hebert created Truth To Paper to bring depth and connection to the world. Together, we create artwork that sparks a truth inside the viewer, layered with beauty and meaning.


We made it our mission to bring more grace and depth to our world.

Sure, everyone can write. But how often are you stopped in your tracks with the just a few words that somehow, in their simplicity and meaning, hit you right in the heart. 

That's our aim - to use the power of art to spark connections between people.

We are writers, artists, mothers, daughters, consumers, bosses, photographers, painters, poets, mediators, peace-keepers, creatives.

We are Truth To Paper.


We crave real. We crave beauty. We crave real beauty. Wounds stitched together with golden thread. Truth.
— Kate Nicholson and Rachel Hebert

So who is behind Truth To Paper? A few words about our founders...

Rachel Hebert

likes to pretend she’s invisible.

(Except when she’s dancing or hanging from things)

She paints most days. 

And is sometimes paid for it.

Early influences include 

the waves at night, miracles, orange shag carpet, sand castles, and the Holy Spirit. Later: art school, wanderlust and Hafiz.

Now: a desperate clawing for beauty


Kate Nicholson

Is an open book. 

It’s a mystery and a comedy.

With lots of words. And gold edges.

She holds a camera, a child, and a pen with equal grace. All at once. And smiling.

Her long bones grew on Spanish moss, mud pies, early readings of the DSM, and wide-eyed watching 

raucous Mardi Gras parades.

A rare bird.

Makes beauty. 

Brings ease.
