Vancouver born and raised Athena Bax is a dedicated full time painter who believes in paying it forward with her art. Her signature soft focus finishes resonate in her diverse body of work of ethereal earthy trees, watery landscapes or her adorably real animal images that sit among her popular little bird series.

Athena’s equine and dog portraits have also attracted an adoring fan base that appreciate the depth of her ability to create beautiful hyper real images that portray and capture animal expression with the deftness of realism.
About Counting Sheep: “I photographed this image several years ago on a drive through Salt Spring. I took this one single shot with my camera phone… I was amazed at the stillness that came from the animal and the tree. It was like they were having a moment… Perhaps an argument? Perhaps some sort of situation… They both had a strong silent yet animated presence For years this picture became my personal fairytale. Eventually this photo made its way to becoming multiple colourful versions of what I call now my counting sheep series. Stay tuned for more on this photo and the stories it continues to share…”
Athena’s work is collected in numerous private and corporate collections, including Canaccord Capital, Fiore Financial Corp., Boffo Developments, Bossa Developments, Wedwood Hotel & Spa, Cliff Lede Winery, and former President Bill Clinton.
