    Claudia Alvarez is a painter and sculptor currently living in New York City. Born in Monterrey, Mexico in 1969 and raised in California from the age of three, she received a BA from the University of California, Davis in 1999, and an MFA from California College of Arts, San Francisco in 2003.

    Alvarez worked at the University of California Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California from 1987-2000. Deeply affected by the terminally ill children and elderly patients she encountered as a non-emergency ambulance driver, she reflects on their strength and vulnerability through her painted and sculpted figures.
