Barbara Stutman studied Fine Art and Art History at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Concordia University and the Saidye Bronfman Center. Early in her career her focus changed from creating jewelry designed around aesthetics to more challenging pieces that stimulate the mind as well as the eye. This development unfolded concurrent with her decision to work using textile techniques such as weaving, knitting and crocheting.
Stutman’s jewelry has been exhibited and written about worldwide. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec in Quebec City, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Koch Ring Collection in Switzerland, the Racine Art Museum in Racine, WI and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
