Solace went to art school, hoping to become an artist. Since that's not a good way to actually make money, like many art students, she also took classes in graphic design. While in college, she met peers who were Wiccans. Finding the religion spoke to her more than the Christianity of her upbringing, she converted. Combining the two, she began working to create visionary art, influenced by both the pre-Raphaelites and contemporary spiritual and religious artists. After graduating from college, Solace put her graphic design courses to work to keep body and soul together and found herself working for a big advertising firm, creating ads, usually for products she hates. Even just creating ads feels like a betrayal of her principles sometimes. The worst of it is though that she has found her job uses up most of her creative juices and she doesn't have the time and energy to do what she really cares about. She does find a refuge in her Wiccan group, where many others struggle to balance holding down a straight job and their counter-cultural aspirations.<br>

Recently, Solace has begun getting weird visions of Stonehenge throughout the ages, but particularly from the era when it was first built and used as a site of worship. She has begun to see and hear spirits of the dead and even ancient gods, who are willing to aid her, if they are treated with respect and she acts in accord with their ideas of virtue. She is also able to cloak herself in others’ expectations of her, reflecting the fact that people throughout the ages have projected what they expected or wanted to see onto Stonehenge, not truly seeing Stonehenge for what it is and was.
