Claudia, a keen gardener for many years, having been disappointed with photographic images of her flowers, was inspired by Barbara Hunt to take up the paint brush. Since then she has developed an interest in botanical watercolour art, visited Jenny Phillip’s studio in Melbourne and held a successful exhibition and sale of her work. She also enjoys doing needlework to create similar versions of flowers, mixing threads instead of paints. In her class for beginners she would like to share her enthusiasm for watercolour painting. Was selected to exhibit at the Town of Claremont Art Awards in 2015.
