I’ll start off by saying I hate “About” pages when I have to write them about myself!! I’ve stared at this blank page for far too long…

What can I say about myself? My name is Athena Mariah LaRue. I’m artsy-fartsy. I like to make things with my hands. If I lost the ability to use my hands I would us my toes. The will to create is too strong to stop me.

My biggest problem is I can’t commit to one form of art. So I would put myself in the broad ‘Maker’ category. I’m not an expert at anything, but I’m semi-skilled in a lot of things.

I love life. I love our Creator Jehovah. I love my husband. I love my son. I love nature. I love animals. Snails are underestimated and misunderstood, so watch where you step people!

If you want to give me a gift. Make me a snail.

If you would like to support my dream career please join my Patreon:


Some people probably call me a crazy cat lady behind my back. They might be right.

I took Fine Art and Ceramics all 4 years of High school and 3 years in a Jr. College. I then started a family and put most of my aspirations to be a career artist on the back burner. Now that my son is an adult I am able to commit my energy full time into my art. I took a 18 year pause on ceramics and I am very excited to get back into it. Please check out my video page to see my YouTube videos. I have been making a video log of my journey in trying to be a full time artist. 

Success! You're on the list.
