Her paintings are about loving life and

and subjects in Claudia’s work are influenced
by her youth in South Texas and the strong Mexican
culture, and years living in the amazing sunshine
of California! Her bright flowers and landscapes
reflect these magical memories. Claudia's paintings
are also inspired by the Fauve's strong use of
color, Georgia O'Keeffe's simplified subject matter,
and the fun of Peter Max.

and flowers and vegetables in her yard find their
way into Claudia’s whimsical art.
Prior to moving to Kansas City in 2007, Claudia
owned galleries and studios in Bakersfield, California.
Now she works in her home studio and teaches private
lessons as well as workshops in California. She
loves to teach and share the joy of painting with
others and to help them develop their own creative
Life’s an adventure! With Claudia’s paintings,
she shares some of that adventure and love of life
- from a tiny bird to a magnificent landscape.
