In The Artist’s Words

After graduation in History of Art and working as a media-designer, I finally found my real vocation in painting!
It is my passion and every moment that I spend in front of my canvas gives me great joy.

I love nature in all seasons, that’s why my artwork is focused on landscape, flowers and still life.
I don’t use any paint-brush in my work. It is the palette knife technique that allows me to paint thickly in an impressionistic impasto style, creating bold layers of bright colors, one applied atop the other, for depth and dimension.

I appreciate your interest in my paintings.

In my Words

If Claudia was going to win a PiMT challenge Impressionism would have to be it. Her ability to capture the light is exquisite and her painterly style captures the art movement so well that she herself could have been a master if she was born a lot earlier. Her surface quality is sumptuous and her palette is fresh. What was in the end a very close competition Claudia’s image certainly was a stand out.

Newsletter Preparation



23rd of October, 2008


News Flash!

This will officially be the last newsletter that I will group Bubblemail out to all our members.
Sending Group bubblemails has become quite an issue where some members on redbubble receive so many that they just delete them on mass.
It is not our intention to annoy our members so although you still will be able to view the weekly newsletter, featured as always next to the featured artist’s work, it will no longer be sent as a bubblemail.

To those of you that appreciate getting the bublemail can I ask you to add your name to a newletter forum and I will bubblemail the newsletter to the individual members who would like it.

The newsletter will also have a home in this forum


Just a little reminder to those of you that have won a challenge and would still like to be represented in the Best of Showcase . Please forward me your information so I can update the thread to include you.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
