Claudia Hafner, watercolorist
I approach my subjects as portraiture, whether people, wildlife, flowers or architecture. Recreating the character of the subject through color and a careful, but loose style which combines a propensity for detail with the desire for freedom and motion.
I have been influenced by several notable watercolorists known for their loose styles and from which I developed my own technique.
My love of nature inspires much of my work. Collectors and followers enjoy my birds, sea turtles, and farm animals. Living in South Florida influences, but does not limit, my choice of subject.
I am a member of the Gold Coast Watercolor Society (GCWS), National League of Pen Women, and the Delray Artist League and participate on committees with each.
I exhibit locally both in indoor exhibitions and outdoor art festivals.
