Claudia was great to work with! She was quick to answer my emails and making some running changes didn't bother her at all. I am quite pleased with the cover art she did for me. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dan Bailes
Claudia is a very talented and skilled illustrator. She did the illustration for the cover for my children's book and the finished piece was wonderful. She was able to covey a lot with gesture and body language and the overall design had a sense of mystery that I was hoping for. I'm very happy with her work.
