Roberta Kiphuth

With a B.A in Art, Roberta used her creative talents to start her own graphic design business at the age of 23. She currently manages Detati, a design and marketing agency in Sunnyvale, California. Detati has been listed as a top agency in the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Book of List for 9 years and received a Silver Addy award for packaging design for Lexar Media.

Finding few options for adults classes, she founded Detati Art in early 2019 to offer a safe, creative space for adults to discover art and explore making art.

Roberta has also taught computer art during summer camps, volunteered at numerous Hands on the Arts events, and was on the City of Sunnyvale Arts Commission for four years.. She is a published photographer and regularly supports art and music organizations throughout the Bay Area.
