Meet the Artist


  My name is Chassta Atkins.  I'm married to Jimmy, and mommy to Evangelina and Rowan.  My "real" job is teaching middle school Spanish in western NC, but my passion is to make art with and for families.  Family is everything, and while art can't contain that meaning, it can help convey the depth of it.  Roots & Rain was created for this very reason:  you and your family supply the roots, and my design will be the rain to help your dream piece grow into reality!

My hope is to create unique pieces that are designed with the family in mind.  I cannot wait to start making your perfect piece come true.

Hand-lettered.  Hand-drawn.  Heart-inspired.
