At Rae, we’re dedicated to helping you create a wellness routine that’s as unique as you. That’s why we bring you curated inspiration—art, music and more—to help you feel your best throughout the day. This week, we connect with artist Kelly Knaga to reflect what our motto—shine from inside—means to her.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I became an artist because it allows me to use my talents and skillset across a variety of industries and projects. One day I might be making a new body of work for a show or painting a mural for a city and the next I might be creating package illustrations for a line of products or home goods. It’s exciting when I get to collaborate with a variety of organizations and brands to tell stories and build connections through my work.

How do you support your well-being throughout the day?

I carve out time for well-being throughout the day by starting my day with music, coffee and dancing with my kiddos and then ending my day with a long meditation walk in nature.

Why were you excited to partner with Rae? 

It’s important for me to work with brands that create space, energy, and tools that support people becoming the best versions of themselves.

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you?

I shine from inside when I’m taking care of my mental and physical well-being.
