She gives herself to art.

Welcome! My name is Connie Solera. I am an artist, teacher, traveler, and a firm believer that art is the language of the soul. I have been on the artist journey ever since I could hold a pencil in my hand and squish clay in-between my toes. My commitment to art is what drove me to receive degrees in painting, art history, and art education. But my yearning to sink into the mystical facets of art has lead me to blaze a unique path of my own.

My passion lives inside the art-soul connection. Through a daily creative practice of drawing, painting, and printmaking, I embrace the unseen, scratch at life's mysteries, and explore the deeper, darker spaces of my being.  As a teacher, I love to guide my students to do the same.

Thank you for opening the door to my online studio where art is both a deep dive and a translation of one's inner world. Everything you find here will help you demystify the journey and sink with confidence as you, too, give yourself to art.

Despair & Disbelief

September 11, 2020

The past few weeks, my morning walks with my dog Rocket have been under a beet-red sun and a hazy grey sky. The smokes from the California wildfires have made their way to Phoenix, and I notice that my family and I are coughing frequently and feel quite lethargic as well.
