Dee Dee Lantzy is an award-winning artist who grew up in the mountains of Vail, Colorado and is currently based in Salt Lake City. She is thrilled to donate this original mixed media painting titled “For Sam Jackenthal” in the silent auction at Jan’s Winter Welcome on October 26th, 2019.
The piece is inspired by the life Sam lived and the light his legacy continues to shine on this planet. The paper cranes are made from local ski resort trail maps, runs Sam used to shred.
Dee Dee has a background in landscape architecture and is drawn to creating work that is inspired by the natural wonders that surround us. Her medium is mixed media on wood using folded paper cranes and butterflies to bring her work off the canvas and into the space. She loves to use reflection, light, shadows and movement to create magic.
When Dee Dee is not making art she is playing and enjoying life with her husband and two little girls.
