Hello, my name is Claudia. Born and raised in Nuernberg, Germany, I now reside just outside of Indianapolis with my husband, two children, a dog, and a cat. My artistic expressions started at the age of 6 when my grandmother introduced me to needlework and other crafts. The love for drawing and photography followed shortly thereafter.
Some of my earlier works have made it through the move from one continent to the other. Sadly, however, most of my original drawings got lost as not all of the moving boxes made it all the way across the pond when I followed my husband to the US in 1993.
In early 2015, I was very honored to have some of my designs featured in a campaign to help raise funds for the Native Hawaiian Organization Mauna Kea Anaina Hou, c/o Ho'opae Pono Peace Project, an affiliate of Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples. To follow and/or support the protection efforts, please visit the official website for Mauna Kea Anaina Hou at www.protectmaunakea.org
A majority of my newer pieces have made it into the hands of private collectors, although I did manage to hold onto a few cross stitched canvases that I simply could not part with. Amongst them, a 14.25 x 11.5 inch scene from 'Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers', that was autographed by John Rhys-Davies (Gimly) in early 2016.
