My name is Claudia Gradella Haddad, I live in the city of Itapetininga, SP.
I am an Urbanist Architect, graduated from PUCCAMP, Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas, in 1996.
My first contact with watercolor was in 1994, where I took a course in watercolor painting with Professor Ana Maria Moreira Bento, at the "Expressão de Arte" Gallery, in Campinas.
In 1997, already graduated, I worked at Senac institution, for 5 years, teaching courses in Interior Decoration and Painting, wall art, and also at Fatec Taquaritinga school.
At this time, I taught Italian language classes at Circolo Italiano, Gabriele D'Annunzio in the city of Catanduva and in 1998 I got a scholarship for Italian language teachers, through the competition "America Latinissima", held in 1998.
Aquarela has always been present in all my professional projects.
I always try to specialize with renowned teachers, through workshops.
In 2019 I was invited to participate in the "European Art Circuit", Portugal and Spain, carried out by the art curator and atelier MVinhas.
In 2019, I participated in the Arts Circuit in Chaves, Madrid and Lisbon, with my paintings in oil paint on canvas, and studies in Watercolor.
In 2020, my watercolor work "Flowers of Autumn" was selected to participate in the International Mini art exhibition, "Virtual Miniart Truth", www.miniartex.org , led by Juliane Mai and Clara Pechansk.
In 2020/2021, I participate in the European Art Circuit MVinhas, with my Watercolors. My studies and the main theme of my work in Watercolor are based on Flores.
I think that art is the union of several worlds, which must be connected to ourselves. Through us, Art transports itself and becomes alive, saying who we are.
My Art will always be expressed through my world of Flowers!
