Portraits of Life

I was hardly a teenager, when I became fascinated with drawing portraits of the Beatles. I literally taught myself about the face from drawing from fan magazines using a pencil.

I grew up in the hustle and bustle of New York City, earned a BA in Music and moved to Atlanta in the mid 70s which was quite rural then getting me ‘back to nature.’

I became a hand-weaver, loving the mechanics of the loom and the idea of a shop. My weaving was about color and texture in tapestries and later, fabric for designer clothes. The stirrings of painting in watercolor, initiated through my mother’s watercolor art, began with my weaving tapestries and the color, fluidity, and texture came with producing fabric.

Corporate life, Art Institute of Atlanta, computers, graphic design, multimedia and web in the mid-nighties until the dot.bomb era finally led me to a watercolor class, something I dreamed about since weaving days and the influence my mother’s watercolors had on me.

As “Portraits of Life,” the tagline for my work, I approach subjects for my watercolor paintings as portraiture and recreate the character of the subject through color and a careful, but loose style, combining a propensity for detail with the desire for freedom and motion.

Now I live a block from the beach in S. Florida, and I paint and exhibit in outdoor art shows and festivals 5 months of the year.

My complete body of work can be seen and purchased on my website, ClaudiaHafnerWatercolor.com. It is the most complete venue for purchasing my work 24/7.

My work can also be seen on my Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest art business pages.

”Painting with watercolor is like being on a roller coaster. One has to paint quickly, let go of total control and not really know if you will arrive! While there is excitement, there is also an intimate, more quiet space where I become one with the subject." Claudia Hafner
