Claudia Smith is a Seattle based, lifelong photographer who is inspired by nature's artistry. She finds lines in her images taken during outdoor wanderings and then flips and stitches those lines into building blocks and constructs those building blocks into grids.


She disembodies objects from the natural world, rendering them in the abstract. Many of her creations have an element of hide-and-seek. The image may just look like a pattern, but look past the negative space and you will find a tree or an insect or a bird or some other surprise.


These patterns translate beautifully onto fabric, wrapping paper, wall coverings and more.
