Claudia Chappel has been passionate about art since she was a child. Her studio space is her oasis - a chance to be calm, creative, and at peace.

The sudden death of her son Benjamin left her reeling from grief that time has only served to level out, not heal. Claudia went through a period where she couldn't even turn to art for comfort.

After a few years, she began to speak to other grieving mothers and was inspired to write a book. Writing The Art of Living with Grief helped Claudia discover that helping other grieving parents gave both her grief and her art a purpose.
