Born in Minot, North Dakota, Michael Soltis is an American/Canadian contemporary visual artist, home designer/builder, and actor. He uses letters, numbers, and images in non-traditional ways, incorporating color, lines, and various mixed media elements to build the structure and draw out themes and ideas that connect us to past experiences or memories. Soltis has a Master's degree in Education, has worked in the business and non-profit sector as a high-level manager, and was a film and television actor for several years. However, he never forgot his true passion – art. He lives and works in Delta, British Columbia.
