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.

  • Hey there! I’ll be opening up registration for my October 11-18, 2020 #paintFEARLESSmexico retreat later today — but only to the painters on my wait list & the alumnas of my Paint FEARLESS retreats. There are only 8 spaces available & I have a hunch they’re gonna go fast. Please DM me your name & email address if Oaxaca is calling you & you want to be added to the wait list for first chance at grabbing one of those spaces — I’d hate for you to miss out & I would looooooooove for you to join me!

  • My tenth #paintFEARLESSmexico came to an end last night. Now it’s time to do two of my most favorite things: make art & wander aimlessly. ..

  • Yesterday at #paintFEARLESSmexico we took some time to peek into some artist studios. It’s fun to see how some artists run a tight, organized machine & others....well....you get the picture! What kind of artist are you? Are you more at home in the midst of chaos & disorder or are you a stickler for keeping things tidy? I’d say I’m an artist that walks a fine line right in between. ..

  • The city of Zachilla is where they host a mural contest each year for the Day of the Dead. It’s also one of the places we visit for inspiration at #paintFEARLESSmexico.
