Hello there! My name is Claudia.
I’m a Latinx visual facilitator and strategic illustrator. At the core my work is about creating connection and understanding. I do this by witnessing and deeply listening to people. Weaving their ideas, dreams and process and manifesting them into compelling visuals that support their journeys to advance change.
It is powerful and vulnerable work to hold, interpret and visualize people's stories while recognizing that their lived experiences and identities are different from mine. As such I work with humility and care. Acknowledging diversity and difference of race, gender, ability, language and power. I try my best to attend to them in ways that don't perpetuate dominant or oppressive narratives in my representations and partnerships with clients & facilitators; and invite people to talk to me and edit anything that may have been mis-represented. Holding my own blind-spots as opportunities to name and deepen conversations and for learning.
I was born and raised in Mexico and I currently live in Brooklyn, NY. I am fluent in English and Spanish and happy to support you in either language.
I am a mama to two amazing kids and a dreamer, tinkerer, Macgyverer and traveler.
