Stephanie Soles- Vice President

Steph Soles was born and raised in York, Pennsylvania, where she discovered at a very young age that she’d rather be creating than just about anything else. Through the years, pencil drawing, pen & ink and colored pencils became her favorites, which led to teaching in the back room of her art supply shop in order to share her enthusiasm of creating with others. 

In 2008, Steph moved to Virginia, and continues to teach a variety of art classes and workshops to all age groups in Mathews, Gloucester, Kilmarnock, Yorktown, and her home studio in Bohannon.

There is no moment when we are not creating. As both a creativity coach and teaching artist, Steph works with students to dissolve limiting thoughts or beliefs that prevent them from realizing their fullest potential, inviting them to rediscover abandoned aspects of self and explore passions in this creative process called Life. She honors the sensitive and non-linear nature of creative beings and those who wish to shape their lives in an authentic way through the expression of creating.

No stranger to the pain and isolation that depression brings, Steph encourages her coaching clients and students to engage in creativity as an unspoken language. The process of creating allows people with depression and anxiety to achieve a sense of independence and self-sufficiency, break through dysfunctional thought patterns, develop healthy coping mechanisms, achieve greater empathy, and strengthen their problem-solving skills.  When we create, we heal.
