Dirty Footprints Studio

Welcome to the studio of Connie Solera.

Welcome to Dirty Footprints Studio!
I’m Connie Solera — artist, mentor, & explorer.

With 20+ years of experience teaching art and working as a full time artist, I offer a mystical approach to painting grounded in tradition. Through workshops, retreats, and mentoring, I guide artists to dig deep, experiment wildly, and discover new techniques and approaches that excavate their innate gifts, enhance their unique strengths, and help them thrive as heart guided artists.

Artist Empowerment

In IGNITE I mentor women who are ready, ripe, and willing to navigate the uncharted territory of their hearts, creativity, and ways of showing up in the world sustainably and powerfully as artists, teachers, and leaders.  My IGNITE programs go deep and invoke women to discover and own their innate greatness, passions, and creativity.

My online and in-person workshops will invite you to explore the mystical and practical mechanics of your unique creative process. I saturate each workshop with insightful discussions on creativity, detailed instructions to get you painting deeper, and a supportive environment for you to experiment freely in.
