you need poetry. Really, you do.

About Us

We are moms, artists, and business owners living the ceaseless pendulum of nurturing and expression, on a mission to connect to what matters.


Rachel Hebert

Rachel Hebert received her Bachelors of Art at Portland State University in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking. She has a passion for dance, performance and the circus arts. She was raised in a fundamentalist cult and the experience of existing both within and outside of this culture informs her work.

She 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

Kate Nicholson started graduate work at the San Francisco Art Institure then moved to New York to attend Parsons, The New School for Design where she earned a Masters in Fine Art in photography and related media. She also holds a MBA from the University of New Orleans (the most culturally verdant city in the US, where she was raised by an abstract artist and impish psychiatrist on soul food, music and art).

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.

The artists met through their children’s preschool and started writing and making work together in 2017. Their collaboration has sparked a unique energy, which has resulted in producing multi-media work including commissioned poetry, events and interiors.
