Chinese Moon Goddess

I discovered within myself a Chinese sensibility that subtly permeates my work, and I love the architecture and fashion of the Tang Dynasty, a period rich in art and poetry. As an example of the inspiration I find in Chinese mythology and Alphonse Mucha’s paintings, I illustrated a female character after Chang’e, the mid-autumn goddess who flew to the Moon, also known as Princess Kaguya in Japanese mythology. She represents the sadness of separation or lost, as well as the happiness of the family’s reunion.
