Beatrice Athanas 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 and at the Jesse Brock Community Center in Winter Garden.
