Barbra Paitich




Barbra Paitich is an artist who uses a wide range of media. Her passion in art began when she was a child. She earned a BA at San Jose State University and her art was honed through her own efforts and experimentation in the years that followed. She is best known for the vibrant and lush colors and form used in her wearable silk scarves. This is also seen in her decorative throws for furniture and wall art. The wall art is usually hung or woven with metal that has been cut into organic shapes using a plasma torch. This metal work evolved to include copper and brass jewelry formed and cut into pleasing designs that include dichroic glass accents. Barbra demonstrates her work by painting on silk during the studio tour and encourages visitors to try their hands at silk painting while they are at her studio.
