Claudia started  at a young age with art.  She  began her studies at the Werkkunstshule in Krefeld, Germany . Her teacher, Gerhard Kadow was a pupil of Paul Klee and Kandinsky. At age sixteen she began a three and a half year course at the Textilfachshule in Zurich under the direction of Johannes Itten, former teacher at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany.   Thereafter she started working as a "textile designer" in various Studios and Companies in Switzerland first and then in USA (mainly New York City).  For a time she designed greetings cards for American Greetings Corp. and had several exhibitions of her paintings in Cleveland-Ohio, New York City, Bay Shore- Long Island, Lugano-Switzerland, and Melbourne- Florida.

She lives now in Florida and works in her Beach House Studio. She is fascinated by the ocean waves with their movement and rhythm. The play of the sun, the one of the moon and stars over the water , the appearance of light rays, the circles, the squares, the points of light, the bubbles and yes.... the angels.

These paintings are giving particular messages which are different to each individual.  If you would like to share yours, you are welcome to write here:

Una cortese critica da Mara Folini Direttrice del Museo d'Arte Moderna Ascona TI

La tua opera "Assemblage" mi piace molto, interessante, prismatica: una sintesi delle avanguardie (si sente il tuo maestro Itten) brava!
Mara Folini



Critica di  Piero Trupia sulla composizione i quattro pannelli:

Complimenti a Claudia che affronta il tema del cosmo: la sua dinamica interna e il continuo formarsi di nuovi mondi. Sono ammirato dalla capacità tecnica di realizzare allo stesso tempo fusione e distinzione di colori. Ciò al fine di rendere visibile l’incessante dinamica del cosmo. Claudia ci mostra come tecnica e messaggio, linguaggio e poetica siano inscindibili e che solo una grande tecnica può produrre un linguaggio che esprima l’inesprimibile.
