The works shown are currently in the artist's portfolio. They are original acrylic paintings and are available for purchase from the artist at [url=mailto:[email protected]]Equityfarm@aol.com[/url] "Fine art is a cultural snapshot, an icon: the history of our times reflected on canvas." It's from this ideal that cmfaith (Claudia) creates her art. Educated at the Uof M-Minneapolis, she received a degree in music theory and composition, spending the next several years performing with symphony orchestras throughout the Midwest. She credits a sense of form, balance, and color in painting to her musical training. When she retired early after twenty-three years in business,her husband said, "Do what you love. You've always been an artist, so paint." So, in 2004, Claudia got some brushes and acrylic paint. Since then, sales and awards have come quickly.
