She gave herself to art.
My name is Connie Solera. I create art, teach, travel, and write in order to inspire every woman to pick up her paintbrush, let go of her fears, and sink into the artist her heart is calling her to be.
In my past, I skimmed the surface by doing the typical things a “good-lil-artist” should do. But it wasn’t until I stopped doing what was expected of me and started following my own truth that my life cracked wide open. From that moment on, art has been my compass, my mirror, and an endless adventure.
Welcome to my online world where art does a deep dive into life’s creative mysteries; becomes a thread between stories, and a translation of one's inner landscape. Everything you find here will help you demystify the journey and sink with confidence as you, too, give yourself to art.
She shape-shifted like the moon.

Total divas.Read More

Unlike my sketchbook where I tend to finish a drawing in one sitting, or once-in-awhile it might take me two. My iPad is packed with partially finished drawings that I come back to again and again. I started this drawing months ago with the intention to explore what it would look and feel like to leave more blank space in the image than actual line and pattern work.Read More
