Claudia has been creator of art and fashion for over 19 years, delivering many community projects and workshops to students and adults around Queensland, while working as a free-lance artist and tutor with Flying Arts Queensland in Wearable Art, Mosaics, Recycled Art and Public Art.
“Pushing the boundaries when it comes to unusual materials is what I love to do. As an artist I create to inspire people. Social and environmental issues go hand in hand when creating. It’s a platform to voice, explore and discover. For me, it’s about creating with recyclables, wowing my audience, while fostering the art of creative thinking and giving reuse a DELUXE finish“.
Claudia dreams big, creates with passion, and, as a result, inspires us to do so ourselves, by fostering the individual and the wider community through her wearable art workshops, public art and events.
With skills and experience in a variety of fields—from creative director, workshop facilitator, fashion designer to artisan craftswoman and educator, Claudia’s extraordinary talents offer a creative vision that not only pushes boundaries and crosses mediums, but fosters individuals and communities to strengthen their resilience, grow and diversify.
