Claudia Apaid, a Haitian American artist whose designs are inspired by energy, spirituality and nature, interweaves a variety of mixed media creations in handmade embroideries and metal works, often alongside artisans from around the globe.

Apaid uses hand-stitched embroidery and techniques with sequins, crystals, glass beads, precious stones and metal to create her unique pieces.

Described as vibrational pieces, her works of art are charged with Reiki healing energy while handcrafted with precise attention to detail. Complex patterns and cellular structures, both of which represent the universe, are weaved in a way creating a personal connection to all matter. With a focus of the repetitions and patterns found in nature and the spiritual worlds, Apaid explores and documents the very nature of life itself and our relationship with it.

Apaid is a graduate from Miami International’s University of Art & Design with a degree in Design. She has displayed her work in exhibits throughout the US and internationally. She recently created Haiti’s national costume for the Miss Universe 2022 pageant and unveiled a new collection of wearable art clutch bags. She has been featured in various publications and was recently awarded by the city of Miami for her artistic contributions to the city.
