Beatrice Athanas - Biography

       Beatrice Athanas, realistic painter of european landscapes, was born in Germany

and has traveled and lived in Europe, South America and islands in the Caribbean.

She is a graduate at Helene-Lange Lycee in Hamburg which was instrumental in introducing

her to the arts and foreign languages.


        When she immigrated to America and settled in Florida, she was introduced to a new life.

She met pilots, "barn stormer" who shared their love for airplanes and she learned to fly also.


She followed her dream of becoming a professional artist in 1984, studying art and taking various

master classes in France, also from New York artist Gregg Kreutz, and Ralph L. Bagley, who became

her friend and mentor.

She decided to bring her art to the community; for the past 18 years she participates in art shows and

exhibits all over Florida.

As of January 2013 she teaches oil painting classes for Crealde, school of art, in Winter Park at the 

Jesse Brock Community Center in Winter Garden.

 

       The inspiration for her paintings come from her many travels,

special moments from her past and present, scenes from her childhood.

Her work is versatile in style and subject matter. Her passion for her art shows in the use of vibrant colors,

various brush stroke techniques and the light that reflects her mood towards the subject.
