Claudia creates her works, suspended at the boundary between the visible and the invisible.

"This is a terrain without words, prior to formulation and articulation, where images may alight with ever the briefest of visitations before dematerializing, leaving behind a familiar feeling that something was there, waiting to be understood and known. While my creativity unfolds in a precognitive gap between thoughts, this inner sensing is partly in response to my personal experiences of the world around me."

The form of this book of eight wax manuscript pages was inspired her meditation practice and influenced by a trip she and her husband took to Southeast Asia visiting Vietnam and Cambodia.
