Louise Solecki Weir is a Canadian Sculptor whose commissioned work can be seen at the Catholic Archdiocese in Vancouver and the Vancouver Law Courts. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University in Toronto in 1985. Intrigued by the power of image and the healing qualities of art, she continued her education in the field of art therapy through the Toronto Art Therapy Institute, and found rewarding work as an art therapist treating both psychiatric and dual diagnosed adolescents. Currently concentrating on her own artistic process, she is drawn to exploring the expressive qualities of the portrait and the figure through clay and capturing sense of an inner life within her works.
