SKYE SAXON: FOX
Studio A artist Skye Saxon’s world is populated by shadows, intergalactic warriors and memories from past lives.
Her character in birdfoxmonster is an ambassador for an often unpopular animal.
“I like foxes - I like their sly nature. Skye Fox is very similar to Skye Saxon (we share similar features) but also different. She’s not technically human. Hence the name.”
And Skye Saxon is all human?
“More or less. Can’t say that I am all human - not in my past lives.”
In previous lives, Skye recalls being found and raised by Mana the clown and apprenticed in the art of circus skills, earning a living from performance. Some residue of some of past lives remains with her still.
“At one stage I was learning how to juggle chainsaws. It’s not impossible but you need a good arm, a good eye, and perfectly timed rhythm.”
At first glance, Skye’s new development home in the north-west Sydney is in stark contrast to her second, mystical realm where parallel dimensions exist and almost anything is possible. But after she guided me through her suburb and its pockets of forest park lands, parallel dimensions seemed possible just about anywhere.
