Birgitta Lapides says that painting and the fine arts have always been an integral part of her life.
However, she began her career as a weaver and clothing designer for many years, which taught her the importance of color and texture.
"These elements, combined with the fabulous palette of Arizona's earth and sky, have inspired me in both my landscape and my abstract painting," she says.
Birgitta Lapides studied formal art education at L'Ecole Superieure D'Architecture et L'Art Appliqué in Brussels in 1977. She received her AA degree in textile design in 1982 from Pratt Institute, NYC.
