Michael Soltis

Describe yourself with only two words.
Passionate. Creative.

Describe your artwork with only two words.
Ordered. Chaos.

Why did you decide to participate in the Love Letter Project?
I love the spirit of support, encouragement, sharing, and collaboration. It’s how we should live out every aspect of our lives.

Have you personally ever received or sent a love letter before?
My wife can attest that I was a prolific love letter writer.

Has art or making art helped you get through a difficult time in your life? How did it help you?
I am an actor and a visual artist and both of these expressions of my creativity have helped me immeasurably. I only started to fully express myself creatively and admit I was an artist in my late 20’s and it has been so liberating. I lived for too long with the expectation to be somebody other than who I was created to be.

Just to get people excited… what letter did you choose?
I chose a letter from a Holocaust survivor who encourages all children be compassionate and never lose faith in the possibility of peace. It’s beautiful.
