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 and events. With skills and experience in a variety of fields—from creative director, workshop facilitator, fashion designer to artisan craftswoman, 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.
"Without your experience, creative guidance and proactive management to the Dress the Central West project, the magic of the West would truly go unnoticed. You are an amazing artist, designer, educator and creative director whose passion and dedication has touched the lives of all those involved in Dress the Central West.
With your valued expertise and artistic ingenuity, our community has been able to express themselves in ways they have never previously imagined"

“As an artist, I love to challenge myself, I am deeply passionate about the use of recycled materials to create with, we have an endless abundance of materials just waiting to be turned into something new!
Texture, repetition and movement are strong elements that I am drawn to when creating.
The use of traditional techniques such as knitting , crocheting and weaving are also strongly used within my works.
Pushing the boundaries when it comes to unusual materials is what I love to do.
It really makes my audience do a double take, when then see a dress made from recycled plastics and discarded mop heads"
"Working with Claudia was not just a pleasure it was inspiring and exciting.
