Biography


Libby Pantazis, Artist Bio    
 
Creativity is a talent not lost in law school; it is definitely an asset for a practicing attorney.  Having retired from my practice, I have transferred my creative writing talent to a canvas thick with oils.  Representational paintings of bicycles and boats, pitchers and popsicles, pomegranates and people all have a deeper meaning than the strokes belie. Angles of handle bars tell a story as much as words could describe a departure into a French bakery. The many values of red in a pomegranate underscore its choice as the fruit offered up to Dionysius, the God of Wine and Fertility.
 
My paintings have been enhanced by weekly study with Barbara Evans and workshops with Camille Przewodek, Quang Ho, Dan McCaw, Kim English, Joe Paquet, Lucy Mazzaferro, Nancy Chaboun and their reference to Sorolla, whose work I was privileged to observe in Spain and at the Hispanic Society of America in Spanish Harlem, New York. The joy of painting outside with my dogs at my feet in Birmingham, Alabama or in a group on the streets of Avalon, California or Beaune, France is only surpassed by spending time with my family and my most recent Hot Air Balloon ride in Albuquerque, New Mexico!
