I was recommended Claudia by another body artist and wasn’t disappointed! Pre-shoot communication was perfect, clear and direct. She has an amazing amount of patience and drive for perfection in her work. She is professional, talented, friendly and easy to work with, I would definitely recommend her and hope to work with her again in the future. Thank you!
I had my bump painted by Claudia at my baby’s shower! She had done a great job, and the baby was responding to her brush! I totally enjoyed the experience and I would definitely do it again! She’s very professional and friendly, a pleasure to have her around! Highly recommend her!
