Meet Claudia

I absolutely love creating things.

Growing up in an era long before the Internet was a household commodity, my days were wasted away with creativity. I have always been intrigued by puzzles and the act of taking things that otherwise look like nothing, and bringing them together to create something. As such, I have always worked well with my hands. I find it very easy to replicate things and/or put things together.

Over the course of my life, I’ve practiced art in every medium imaginable: leather, wood, ceramics, bookbinding, decoupage, silk screening, drawing, painting, jewelry design, polymer clay, cookingphotography, web development, sewing, and crocheting. I do not have any formal training in any of these mediums other than the 4 years of art classes in high school. When I take an interest in something, I immerse myself fully into the experience and learn by process. A lot of love and attention to detail goes into everything made.

ON A MORE PERSONAL LEVEL

Before relocating to Indiana with my husband Matt, lived in Fairfield County, Connecticut for almost 20 years. While in Connecticut, I finished college, obtained my real estate license, and moonlighted as a freelance concert photographer.

I have two bright, beautiful daughters, aged almost 16 and almost 3. Sometimes it’s hard to tell them apart.

I love the Howard Stern show and make no apologies for  being a fan.

Originally from Miami, born and raised, I am a lifelong , die-hard Miami Dolphins supporter. Teal and orange runs through my veins.

I love crossword puzzles. The more difficult, the better. Puzzles in the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, and LA Timesare my favorite.

My goal in life is to have a farm somewhere within reasonable distance of a beach. Or a grass hut with WiFi in the Polynesian Islands. Whichever comes first.
