"I'm happy imagining my paintings in people's homes, where they are viewed and appreciated.""I was born in Petrópolis. Although I majored in chemistry, I eventually gave in to a greater passion — my love for art. I studied visual arts and art history in the Parque Lage where I was able to perfect my knowledge and painting techniques, and continued at the Casa de Arte do Recreio. Today I participate in Novica-featured artist Luiz Badia's studio.
"At the age of six, I began drawing with the help of my older sister, who has since passed away. She drew very well, and she was the one who discovered my talent and believed in my potential."
Sensitive and romantic by nature, Claudia is inspired by the beauty of the city and in the arts — such as classic dance — to create magnificent ballerina compositions set in Rio de Janeiro. Her works reveal the love, passion and poetry in her soul.
"There was a time in my life when I felt as though I had no foundation, immersed in the subjective pain and anguish that leads us to reflect on life and its inherent questions. After some four years, I emerged from that period to embrace my larger passion — painting.

"Romantic Impressionism at its Best"
Beautiful. Thomaz has a wonderful sense of the romantic and the skills needed to bring her ideas to the canvas. The colors and textures match the mood of the couple at the focal point of the scene; a scene whose composition is almost perfect. What can't be seen in the jpg photo on the web site is the paintings plasticity which Thomaz achieved by using thick drops of paint on the leaves in the foreground. I live in a relatively large European city and I first searched the galleries here for an appropriate anniversary gift for my wife, but found nothing on offer in any price range that matches the romantic emotions conveyed by this painting. Thomaz is a talented artist and, for the right occasion, I would not hesitate to buy another one of her works.
