Claudia completed three years of atelier-style study of representational oil painting at Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio. In 2020, she began showing her work at Rob Schouten Gallery in Langley, Washington on Whidbey Island. Claudia and her partner moved to Sandia Heights in January 2022. She continues to discover and learn new things with every painting. Her goal is to interpret the beauty she sees and capture that vision in oils.
