About Claudia Henao

"There is nothing perfect about my work because perfection is not what I’m striving for. Instead, I try to provoke beauty in the imperfect along with a physical response. I want people to touch and feel the textures that make each handmade piece unique. Imperfection is part of handmade and it is a part of my life path and the story of my work”

I am a glass, visual and mixed media artist. Unlike other artists my canvas is glass. My work is inspired by color, reflected light, textures, nature. I am also a wife and mother. Art through creative expressions has always been an integral part of my inner self, connecting all aspects of my life since my childhood.
