Artist and art historian living in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, Ms. Lantz is an internationally known artist with works in private and public collections in the contiguous 48 states as well as Europe, Australia, and Turkey. She has won numerous awards throughout her career for intaglio printmaking, drawing and painting. She was also included in the Virginia Museum of Fine Art Biennial of Prints and Drawings, the National Juried exhibition at Nelson Gallery, the Lynchburg Academy of Fine Arts Annual National Juried Exhibition," and 'Virginia Celebrates Women in Arts: Minds Wide Open; where she received the 2010 YWCA Women of Achievement Awards for Arts. She has exhibited in many groups shows as well. With over 300 intaglio images, 1000+ drawings and pastels, and who knows how many paintings, she now turns her energies to painting and graphite (not pencils, rather large pieces of pure graphite manipulated into different shapes for her tools). She is also the founder and first curator of the Community Art Collection located at Virginia Western Community College, the largest permanently displayed collection of the artists of Southwestern Virginia. She had to remove and sell her own piece from this collection to defray medical expenses and has since recovered the work, hoping to return it to the collection in the near future. VWCC is where she also taught as a Professor of Studio Art (intaglio printing, silkscreen, lithography, wood block printing, life drawing) and Art History (complete survey of Western Art also developing and teaching Survey of American Art from Pre-Columbian era to the present) until her tragic disability in 1998.
