About the Artist
Through painting Claudia Soria has been able to unleash her creative side. From the moment she started painting, her style has evolved from painting in a realistic style to a more natural and fluid style that borrows light and color from the impressionists and surface and brushstroke from modern and abstract painters.
Claudia has been painting with renowned artist Andy Braitman since 2005. She has also taken workshops from renowned artists including pastel and oil artist Greg Barnes and figure and portrait artist Miriam Durkin. She travels to her native Bolivia every year where she paints under the instruction of Bolivian painter Oscar Rodriguez since 2002.
Traveling has provided Claudia with a diverse array of views for her landscape paintings which include images from North Carolina and Bolivia. Although Claudia’s work has focused on landscapes and still life, she is currently experimenting with portraits and figure drawing and painting.
Claudia lives in Charlotte NC with her husband and three children.
