Valley Art Gallery Features Claudia’s Creations

This August and September, Valley Art Gallery is honored to feature the artwork from Claudia's Creations.

  Artist Claudia Wagemann considers herself a colorist. She creates beautiful wearable art by playing with colors on fabrics including silk. She started this art form after taking silk painting classes from Jill Targer at Hancock Community College. She was inspired to start playing with colors. Creating scarves and wraps soon became her favorite art form. She is now turning her hand-painted fabric into couture garments.


"After 38 years in education in Santa Maria and Montclair, California, I finally have the time to pursue my artistic side. I am into impressions and feelings. Let the color flow!" stated Wagemann.


Claudia is also an active member of the Silk Painters International. She organized the 2012 international conference and assists the local chapter in many areas including organizing two local Silk Fashion Shows.
