Art Is A Journey, Paint FEARLESS.

Welcome to Dirty Footprints Studio!

My name is Connie Solera. I’m an artist, writer, and creative instigator with over 20 years of experience teaching art, a lifetime of following my artist path, a fervent entrepreneurial spirit, and a devotion to all things creative, wild, and true. Here at Dirty Footprints Studio I offer mentoring, resources, and retreats for heart guided artists as well as an intimate peek into my own creative shenanigans.

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.
