“When we paint our joy, wear our joy, or even decorate our joy, we are honoring the essence of who we were always meant to be.” — Kelly Rae Roberts
Amber Lotus Publishing is excited to welcome Kelly Rae Roberts! Her playful portraits feature best friends, winged creatures, and blooms galore — all layered with textures, patterns, and rainbows of paint. Her wonderful new 2022 wall calendar and 17-month weekly planner (August 2021–December 2022) are now available for purchase.
Self-taught artist and entrepreneur Kelly Rae Roberts believes in the power of possibility. A former social worker, Kelly Rae picked up her first paintbrush at age 30 and everything changed. Painting brought her what she was craving: healing, unburdened joy, awakening. Her tender style of truth-telling and her possibility-driven approach to life, work, and art spread like wildfire. Her creations have been featured in countless books, magazines, and greeting cards. She is the creator of several beloved e-courses, books, and retreats that focus on the idea that when we let art out, we let love in.
She lives in the small town of Sisters, Oregon, with her son True, husband John, and two English bulldogs, Lulu and Amelia.

Amber Lotus Publishing is excited to welcome Anahata Joy Katkin to our family. We have been a big fan of her soul-stirring artwork for a long time, so working together to publish her collection of calendars has been a thrill.
PAPAYA co-founder Anahata Joy Katkin developed her passion for the arts by trial-and-error discovery. She creates original paintings, drawings, and mixed media pieces that have woven a heartcentered landscape of offbeat muses and vivid illustrations. PAPAYA’s signature aesthetic has been celebrated around the globe since 2003.
“I love the place where pretty and gritty meet. Where flowers, faces, and ink run together. I’m endlessly inspired by repeating themes of plants, travel, Victorian era, folk arts, Asian influences, and female faces. I believe in working from impulse to impulse and answering to an intuitive process. I make artwork for myself and then weave pieces into our PAPAYA & FIREWEED collections alongside our talented in-house design team.” — Anahata Joy Katkin

We’re so happy to welcome the family of artists from the popular website They Draw & Cook™. This 2020 illustrated recipe calendar of the same name will treat your senses to a feast of colorful culinary inspiration featuring a diverse array of styles and delectable dishes from different cultures.
Salli S. Swindell and Nate Padavick, a sister-and-brother design and illustration team, have created hundreds of illustrations for magazines and books. Inspired by their love of cooking and doodling, the duo founded the popular They Draw & Cook™ (TDAC) website in 2010. The idea for TDAC formed during a family vacation as Nate was trying to re-create a favorite dish while Salli sat at the counter with her watercolors. Today TDAC features the internet’s largest collection of illustrated recipes created by artists from around the world and has become a big, happy, creative playground where people share their love of food and art.
We happily curated the 2020 They Draw & Cook™ calendar from this varied and talented bunch. Some of them are professional illustrators and practicing artists, while others are passionate doodlers and drawers.

We’re excited to welcome Android Jones to our family of contributing artists. His vibrant multilayered psychedelic pieces challenge your perception of reality and push the boundaries of imagination. Creativity, Jones emphasizes, is the foundation of consciousness and an agent of social change.
Android Jones began studying art at age eight. At the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, he trained in traditional drawing, painting, and animation. Jones worked as an intern at Industrial Light and Magic and later founded Massive Black, an art development company in Los Angeles. An independent artist since 2005, Jones maintains a large art studio in a repurposed barn in his hometown of Lyons, Colorado.
Jones is well known for his multilayered psychedelic works and live performances using a custom-built digital setup. He participated in the Grateful Dead’s Fare Thee Well Tour, and his work has been projected on the Sydney Opera House and the Empire State Building. A longtime member of the Burning Man community, Jones has exhibited his work around the world and has contributed to events on six continents.
Jones’s work centers on spirituality and altered states of consciousness. Describing his work as Electro-Mineralism, he manipulates light and energy to capture complex concepts while drawing on his formal background in the arts. He attributes his ability to create his art to the wonders of technology and credits the planet’s resources for advancements in art production.
You can see more of his artwork on his website.
