Myth, Mischief & Honey Honey

Honey Honey was created by Jessica Niello- White, a painter, teacher, lover of art history and myth. And if Honey Honey was based on mythical figures, it would be a sort of goddessy blend of Aphrodite, Athena and even a little Hera.

Aphrodite, also known as Venus, is our favorite because she devotes herself to love, beauty and sensual pleasures (sometimes even mischief). That’s our offering to you, in a nutshell. A sense of playfulness, our secret inner worlds, the things we find beautiful that we surround ourselves with every day.

The warrior Athena loves learning, knowledge and storytelling. She is fiercely independent, knows what she wants and how to get it. She is creative and the patron goddess of craft and weaving.

Hera is the Olympian queen of the gods, and the goddess of marriage, women, the sky and the stars of heaven.  She cares for her home and cultivates stability for the family. That’s why the logo of Honey Honey is a house, it’s a home, or a foundation for this project to grow and flourish within.

The overarching vision behind Honey Honey is curating and sharing stories and rituals that can be so Venusian, ones that Aphrodite would delight in. Come join us.
