Athena believes she is an artistic conduit for the cosmic creative spirit in the universe. By expressing a vision that arises from her unconscious through the medium of abstract expressionist oil painting, she hopes to articulate a timeless, universal vision while also reflecting the Gestalt* of our modern era. She also hopes to reflect her own personal biographical experience as a fifth generation California native living in Northern CA.
The artist especially wants to show her deep love of art and joy in the creative process. This desire was inspired by her travels around the world, studies as a painting major at The San Francisco Art Institute – SFAI, and MA in the psychology of art.
