I always intended to be an artist.  I majored in art and studied art in Paris, but life took its turns, and I ended up a journalist, although I continued to take classes, draw and paint.

When I finally left journalism seven years ago, people asked, “What are you going to write now?” but the great---or even lousy---American novel was not in me.  I didn’t intend to write; I wanted to paint and have done so ever since.  I attend workshops, take classes, paint once a week with four other artists as well as on my own, and exhibit my work widely.

Claudia paints mainly in acrylics in a sort of fanciful style. She hsa a special affinity for fruits and vegetables, probably because she is a fanatical gardener, but whatever I paint the subject matter is always familiar and close to home.
