Claudia Teal is an award winning artist who specializes in painting
architectural subjects, house portraits, historic buildings and rural
scenes. She started her business in 1992, when painting house
portraits as gifts for family and friends evolved into an opportunity
to work from home and be with her children. Soon she was exhibiting
at art and craft shows and festivals, and to date, she has drawn and painted approximately 2,000 house portraits.
Claudia works out of her historic home in Hedding, New Jersey where
her family has farmed for 6 generations. The house is shaded by a giant 200 year old sycamore tree. Her studio is in the section of the house that was formally a general store, which served the community by carrying items such as starched shirt collars, penny candy, cigars, cigarettes, canned food and dry goods. Now the shelves are stocked with items salvaged from the store, mingled with her husband's own collection of treasures from yesteryear. A vintage red Mobil gas pump out front is yet another reminder of the building's historical charm.
Claudia's flair with pen and brush, attention to detail, and passion for
preserving the past are a winning combination that keeps her clients coming back time and again.
