About Us

Kelley Roberts, owner, is an artist who received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, both in Sculpture. Kelley lived and showed in Philadelphia for ten years before moving to the New Hope, Stockton area. Kelley is passionate about the way that the handmade movement has revolutionized the art world by creating access and commerce between artists and patrons outside of the museum. However, her greatest passion is being the mother of the rarest and most amazing bird.

Paperboat and Bird is a fresh contemporary look into the handmade world featuring modern artifacts made by incredibly talented artists. Having been an artist and a collector for the last 25 years, her desire is to find exceptional handmade goods and connect them to the patrons who will love them. Kelley’s mission is to take people out of the box stores and bring them together with one-of-a kind beautiful art objects.
