Claudia R. Fieo is a printmaker, graphic designer and Professor of Art in the Department of Art and Art History at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts where she has taught design, drawing, and printmaking, courses since 1992.

Among the public collections that have acquired her work are the Boston Public Library, Newport Art Museum, and Slater Memorial Museum, among others.

She has been a member of Printmakers’ Network of Southern New England since 1992; she was an affiliated artist with Hera Gallery for several years, and continues as a member of the Monotype Guild of New England, and Zea Mays Printmaking in Northampton, Massachusetts.
