ARTIST STATEMENT

ARTIST BIO
Born in Switzerland and raised in Canada, Claudia grew up immersed in rich and diverse cultures. She began drawing in the family ‘toy room’ at the age of four.

At the age of 14, Claudia won the art and drama award, afterwards, leaving (visual) art behind and pursuing a career in film & television.

Always in search for deeper, truer and more meaningful work, Claudia met her current mentor, teacher and friend, Michèle Lonsdale Smith (LS&CO), an extraordinary artist who she has studied and worked with for over 13 years.

After 20 years, of being consumed with thoughts of drawing and painting, Claudia travelled to Switzerland (October 2016) to spend some time in her childhood home where she began drawing/painting daily, finally giving time and energy to this beloved art form.

Claudia was recently accepted into the Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy where she will be studying classical realism painting, starting in September 2017.

She was honoured have her art work as part of the set of Gracemoon Arts inaugural production of “Burn This”, directed by Michèle Lonsdale Smith, in Toronto.

Some of Claudia’s art is currently on display in the Raben Restaurant in Glarus, Switzerland.

Her art has been sold to private collectors in Switzerland, Thailand, Paraguay, United States and Canada.
