LaPaletta is owned by Bridget & Steve Wilkin. We have been in the Flims area since 2003 and opened LaPaletta in 2019.
Bridget manages the business and teaches the classes. She previously owned an art studio near Zurich, where she taught for 13 years before deciding to settle full time in the mountains. Steve makes some of the unique products we sell in the store, including wooden sketch and watercolor boxes, Japanese box sets, and more. He has an engineering background and enjoys applying his skills and creativity to 3-D printing and laser cutting projects.
LaPaletta is a "post-retirement" occupation for both of us. Previously, we both had different careers in business and lived in various parts of the world, including the UK, Germany, Cyprus, the US and Japan. Now we are happy to be home with our dog in this beautiful corner of Switzerland - and even happier when our two sons and their partners can visit us from England and the USA.
Part of the fun of working at LaPaletta is meeting people who come to LaPaletta to shop, browse, take a class, or just chat. If you have questions about art materials, techniques, framing, etc., just stop by and ask.
