Claudia Goodell

        A New Mexico Fine Artist

I rediscovered my love for art and found my passion for oil painting after being diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Chronic Fatigue (ME/CFS) and Fibromyalgia in 2005. Having previously worked as an audiologist and later in pharmaceuticals, chronic illness forced me to abandon my career to stay home and rest. What I didn't know was that a new opportunity was blooming. During this challenging period of change I was encouraged by my son-in-law, a very talented artist, to 'just paint', but shortly thereafter we lost him to suicide. Having inherited the contents of his studio, his influence is present in my work. I am encouraged by my husband, other family members, and my art mentor, and I find inspiration in people, music, science fiction, nature and color. 

I am primarily self-taught, with limited formal training at the local community college. Based on Curvismo ©, developed by Ricardo, Chavez-Mendez, I have recently discovered a new sense of liberation in my creativity, and emerging from this is my new style. This process has enriched my developmental process greatly. Art is my new focus, and so I 'just paint'. My pieces have been shown in exhibits in several states including New Mexico.
