I’m claudia osmond, a writer and artist.

what do I write?

I write middle-grade fiction; partly of the realistic kind, mostly of the magical kind.

what’s my art?

I paint with alcohol inks and watercolours. I’ve realized recently that I paint places I want to be — subconsciously. It isn’t until I’m finished a painting that I sit back and think, hmmmmm … I’d like to be there. And “there” is usually out in nature, surrounded by rocks and trees.

what else is there to know?

I love reading, writing, painting, knitting, and above all camping. I keep telling people that one of these days I’m going to sell everything and live on the road in a VW van. Just you wait and see.

I was born in Austria, but live in Toronto, Canada with my husband, two loving doggos, and an aquarium full of darling little water creatures. I’ve got three adult children and a grandpup named Murphy. He’s the absolute sweetest thing!

My writing is represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette of Erin Murphy Literary Agency, and I couldn’t be happier about that! 🙂


I’d love to hear from you! Shoot me an email sometime:

reader. writer. painter. ruminator.
