Claudia was born in Colombia, South America where she lived all of her childhood. She grew up in a small town outside of Cali, Colombia and starting drawing when she was 5 years old with colors that her friends gave to her. She came from a very poor family and even Crayons were a luxury. Everyone kept telling her mother how talented she was. When she was 8 years old Claudia won a painting competition through a famous painter in Colombia whose name is Raul Rayon. Unfortunately her family was too poor to be able to help her with painting supplies so art was a silent passion for many years and doodling on notebooks in school was where she developed a lot of her fluid skills.
Claudia moved to the United States when she was 18 years old with a very different perspective on how to go about living her life. She came to work and struggled to survive as an immigrant in this country with no family and very little English at the time but started going to school so she could do something for herself.
Claudia honestly is raw and has an innate talent in capturing emotions and tends to paint with vivid moving colors or black and white photography. This is an artist that truly loves to paint what it is in her mind. She tends to paint very abstract yet fluid paintings with very rich deep colors.
She recently moved to Sag Harbor and is in awe with all of the natural beauty there. Paintings just seem to spill out of her very inspired mind.
