A prolific artist, Tania Dibbs considers herself “a maker in general” who is not afraid to try new things. Best known as a painter, her work is collected by well-known moguls, Hollywood celebs, and rock stars, including Etty and Perry Farrell, Jackie and Mike Bezos, Portia de Rossi, and Gov. John Hickenlooper. Dibbs attended the University of Virginia from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art and Biology. Her art studies then took her to the SACI Art Institute in Florence, Italy, the Art Student’s League in New York, and the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado, where she won an Aspen Foundation Grant to fund her painting study, an Artists’ Fellowship Award from the Colorado Council on the Arts, and an Art in Public Places Selection from the state of Colorado. With a degree in Biology and Fine Arts, her work explores the jagged intersection between the natural world, humanity and culture through painting and sculpture. She was a pioneer artist in exploring the Anthropocene Era, focusing on the effects of man on the environment. The screens and overlays that she painted over her scenes both highlighted and obscured the masterfully created landscapes beneath, speaking to the beauty of nature as well as to the conflicting yet fantastic constructs of man. Her work is present in several international collections and she has been recognized with numerous awards, amongst which stand out a residency she did in 2016 in the Arctic Circle.
