About Claudia Zamberia

Italy

In my time as an independent artist, I have learned to appreciate my creativity, keen eye for detail, ability to solve problems as they arise, and appreciation of people's input toward the success of a project. I am well spoken and currently learning Italian to broaden my language horizon in Florence, Italy. My ability to express myself through art and ideas has given me a well-spring of confidence. I find that communicating concepts is easier when you believe in the integrity of the "ideas" you stand for. My drive to learn from others enables me to better contribute to a team and it's growth. I aim to always contribute my best and see every pitfall as a learning experience.
