Athena works with bold colourful strokes, exposed linen and layers of resin, she uses oil paints to sculpt her portraits. Scraping away as much paint and detail as possible whilst still retaining the feeling of a person.
She strips portraiture back to its bare essence, emphasising the silent and captivating dialogue between the sitter and viewer
