Barbra Paitich is an artist who has used a wide range of media throughout her life. Her passion in art began when she was young. She earned a BA at San Jose State University studying and creating in their reowned arts program.
She is best known for the vibrant and lush colors used in her wearable silk wraps and scarves. This is also seen in her unique wall art. The wall art is woven with metal that has been cut into organic shapes using a plasma torch.
