Hello & Welcome

25 | INFJ | Solitary Witch
My name is Athena and I create a number of different types of artwork, primarily digital nature and conceptual illustration. I am an artist, beekeeper, harbalist, and shaman.

My Story...

Although my mom and I traveled a lot while I was growing up, I spent most of my childhood in the Park Rapids area in Northern Minnesota, where I currently reside with my fiancé behind a beautiful lakeside resort that he and I help manage with his parents. I began drawing digitally when I was 13 or 14 and have been ever since. I draw a lot of my muse from the forests surrounding my home, my friends, and a love for animals and all things natural. I have an affinity for drawing wild animals, particularly foxes, coyotes, and wolves.

I have been beekeeping since I was 18 and practicing herbalism and shamanism since I was a small child. I  never really shared my passion for being a steward of the Earth and plant cultivation until my best friend, Rachel, and I started our own business called Beessential, where we formulate handcrafted skincare and herbal remedies from scratch. Our shop is located on Main Avenue in Park Rapids and is considered our little space of solace.
