More About the Artists
Tina Marie Franco - I’m Tina, photographer and co-founder of Rebel Elephant Art. I specialize in travel and lifestyle photography. I have traveled and photographed landscapes, people and life across the United States by car, train, and bus over the last 15 years and now by RV. I’ve made a living most of my professional photography career as an event and portrait photographer. From the sidelines of WNBA halftime shows to ringside with wrestlers and occassionally portraits at medical and college facilities. I’m currently located in the deserts of southern Arizona. P.S. I grew up in Detroit Michigan during the 80’s, love hip hop/rap that is rooted in education/social issues, and I’m passionate about food justice. I also love lowrider cars and trucks.

Angela Soliz Franco - I'm Angela and I am an artist. I am inspired by nature, the complexity of the human condition and the power of imagination. I believe in si se puede, in supporting local farms, in written in the stars, in la sangre llama. Sometimes I draw in pen and ink, sometimes I use Photoshop, sometimes I paint in acrylic on canvas, sometimes I collage and sometimes I block print. I speak about topics like survival, resistance, self love and hope with whimsical scenes, bright bold colors and imagination. I believe that art, in a chaotic world, has the power to remind us that we matter and we are important. You can follow my artist's journey on Patreon and Instagram.
