Anticipation, mixed media on canvas, 36″ x 36″
A circle of light and intention is the first step of the creative process of Contemporary Mixed Media Artist, Elaine Soltis. Her layering of mono print, collage, and embellishment, starts with positive thought affirmation, symbol, or image. Too, there is the freedom to recycle, mark, abandon, and edit.
Elaine writes, “Trusting in what you cannot see is not an easy thing to do. It comes from confidence in your personal daily encounters. Years, of working with highly pigmented seasonal French Beaute’ product, art medium instruction in chemical action and reaction, and journaling of the ordinary day, have provided many tools of choice.
Elaine Soltis has been both mentor and teacher to other artists. While creating original designs with them, a valued exchange of experience and friendship develops. The end result of the classroom, the studio time, exhibitions, and gallery showings is that there is no end to ideas, potential, and grace. Moreover, as a result of working as a Promotional Trainer and Colorist for French designed Beaute’, Elaine has developed a high impact and vibrant palette. Currently, Elaine is a Studio Artist (Rm 211) at the Goggle Works Center for the Arts in Reading, PA.
