Anna Soltys has dedicated herself to the language of art, both personally and professionally. The first five years of her life were spent in Poland, followed by five years in France, before finally settling in Chicago. Art was truly the only language she had. Anna spent over a decade creating public art in Chicago, working with communities, organizations, and individuals to install long-lasting messages of hope, love, and individuality. Whether in your home, on the side of a public building, or the facade of a business, these pieces function as landmarks. She studied fine art at Ball State University and Columbia College Chicago, focusing on a variety of art practices. During these years, she explored 2D and 3D mediums such as painting, ceramics, collage, drawing, and jewelry making. These tools have unlocked the doors leading to the creation her work.
