The Artist

Lead artist at Divito Studios, Bianca Divito is an award-winning stained glass designer and conservator, hailing from Co Wicklow. Having worked on the conservation of priceless stained glass windows throughout Europe, her deep understanding of her craft led her to experiment with outdoor installations, as well as innovative techniques and materials—including airbrushing, Swarovski crystals and gold leaf—in commissions for public art and private homes. She regularly exhibits at art exhibitions and Divito Studios produces a range of hanging pieces for retail and corporate gifting.

 

While conservation honed her skill and understanding of stained glass, Bianca now concentrates on public art and private commissions which allow her creativity to flourish. She also teaches short glass courses from the studios at The Old School House in Coolgreany, Co Wexford.

 

Bianca is a graduate of the BA (Hons) in Architectural Glass at The Swansea Metropolitan University in Wales.
