Barbara De Pirro creates mixed media sculptures and installations. Her observations of nature have triggered a profound admiration for its brilliance, resilience and its vulnerability. With each project she strives to create a sense of wonder; enticing the viewer to turn that vision outwards into the natural world, nurturing an understanding of that interconnection and encouraging reflection about our relationship with the environment.

De Pirro’s artwork has been commissioned and exhibited in Museums, Galleries, Sculpture Parks, Art Centers and Public Art Organizations. She is a member of Northwest Designer Craftsman, Surface Design Association and National Basketry Organization. She is an Artist Trust Fellowship, Residency and GAP Grantee, Millay Colony for the Arts & Golden Foundation for the Arts Alum. De Pirro’s artwork is highlighted in multiple publications; including Artistry in Fiber: Sculpture’, ‘TextileArt Around the World’, ‘Green Art: Trees, Leaves and Roots’, World of Threads, Fiber Art Now and Surface Design Association.
