Claudia is represented by TRACY PARK GALLERY in Malibu. “HEARTS OF TREES LOST” debuted at Tracy Park Gallery for the Malibu Art Walk 2019.

Upcoming exhibits will be at MALIBU MARKET and DESIGN in September, and GUALALA ARTS CENTER in October, 2020, all Covid-19 permitting.

Taylor’s practiced mediums vary from drawing, giclee print production, found object sculpture using natural elements, and ceramics, both wheel thrown and hand-built. Her works often employs messaging, both subliminal and graphic, relaying poetic, positive and spiritual text and symbols. She practices ceramics as a deep form of meditation on the creative act, embracing failures as well as success on the journey of artistic expression.

Claudia and her family reside in Malibu, where the recent fires served as an inflection point for her focus on her artwork. She’s also an avid chef, flautist, garden & home designer, surfer and yogi. Now in her 60’s, Claudia is defining ageing gracefully, exuberantly, with joy, passion and purpose.
