HI! I'M ELAINA
Welcome to my portfolio! I left home for a minute and now I’m going back to Cali!
I have 17 years of experience in professional design, developing creative advertising content for various media; such as logo design, social media graphics, product packaging, advertisements, photo editing, marketing materials, and more.
When I’m not designing on the computer, I spend my free time painting for gallery exhibits or competitive bodybuilding on stage. Yes, I realize those two hobbies don’t go hand in hand but I find joy in both.
You can view my artwork at www.elainasoto.com. It has been an honor to have showcased my art in multiple solo and group exhibitions as well as participated in charitable art events.
I’ve curated and hosted an art show highlighting young female artists with hopes in encouraging them that art can have a purpose. We all worked together in unison with a non-profit organization [Rock n Roll Camp for Girls OC]. The show was humbling and a huge success. Together we raised over $1,300 for the organization to help young girls learn how to play instruments and actually perform live shows with their peers. The show was so rewarding for the young artists, they were able to see how their own art can be used to benefit others.
Since then I've coordinated multiple group art events that give back to the community in some way.
Fitness and health has also been a passion for me. In the last couple years I have become a competitive bodybuilder having placed 1st, 3rd, 4th, and ultimately winning as an overall champion. This has been a huge part of my life outside of work and with these accomplishments I've learned that I have the determination and focus to reach any goal I set for myself.
