The magic of living|marked by the muse:

because life is not one size fits all


SPACERR-18X600px

There’s no fly-by night operation here.

No slackers. No air-heads.

But there are fourteen generations — spanning more than four hundred and sixty-two resilient years — of inspired artists — living Marked by the Muse.

To honor that heritage, as mother and daughter, we created Marked by the Muse for women, who are now, as we have always been — independent minded and divinely feminine.

We continue to create art, designs and inspirational services grounded in classical simplicity and updated with a twist of whimsical imagination and wit. Be inspired by the wonder and symbology of color, totems of Nature, and the power of inspirational words.

We seek to creatively inspire you to awaken who you truly are.

Somehow, the majority of the world has come to believe that life is about keeping up with the Joneses, that it’s about how much you have in the bank rather than banking on yourself, that it’s about coloring inside the lines.

You can forget that.

Life is not one size fits all. There is no magic formula to get rich, obtain success or acquire love.

But there is magic in living Marked by the Muse.

The truth is, there is magic inside all of us.

Inside all of us is desire, to know we are good enough; hope, that what we do and who we are matters; creativity, wanting to be expressed; courage, to discover who we truly are.

Because inside all of us is an inspired force of nature – Our Spirit – The Muse.

While growing up, some of us have forgotten the magic of our spirit, the power of our imagination and the belief that anything is possible.

We’ve come to believe that magic is an illusion reserved for sleight of hand, for fairy tales, for children, and that the rest of us are grown up. We live in the real world.

Well, [bleep] that.

Magic is not make believe. It’s not mysterious tricks performed as entertainment.

Magic is no more unique to us than breathing.

We become enchanted in a magic moment. We feel magic, in a magic touch. Magic produces results, when we work our magic. It’s magic that opens doors, when we use the magic of words.

The truth is, magic makes life worth living, when we live Marked by the Muse.

Come and be a part of our creative family and discover your own magic — awaken who you truly are — live Marked by the Muse.

From The Muse’s Perspective:


There are no starving artists here.

No black turtle necks or berets. No snooty wannabes.
No tragic lives to glorify after death.

But there are 14 generations spanning more than 462 years of inspired artists living Marked by the Muse™

 

To honor that heritage, as mother and daughter artists, we created Marked by the Muse for women who are now as we have always been, independent minded, incredibly artistic, and divinely feminine.

 

We continue to create art, designs, and inspirational services grounded in classical simplicity and updated with a twist of whimsical imagination and wit.

 

Be inspired by the wonder and symbology of color, totems of nature, and the power of inspirational words.

 

We seek to creatively inspire you to awaken who you truly are by reminding you of the artist and the magic that dwells within you—The Muse—your spirit.

 

Somehow, the majority of the world has come to believe that if you’re not famous, you’re not an artist and that artists compose a select group—a group of prodigies—a group of actors who win Oscars or musicians who are three-time Grammy winners. You know . . . the superstars. And the rest of us are to merely stand by watching as the rich and famous artists live their magical lives.

 

Well, [bleep] that.

 

Being an artist is not exclusively about fame or becoming billionaires.

 

It is, though, about freeing your imagination. It’s about thinking outside the box and saying good-bye to false assumptions about yourself and future, developing your creativity, rejecting fear, and pursuing your inspirations—your true purposes and possibilities.

 

Being an artist is about using your artistic license to create an inspired life—one that’s magical—to you.

 

The truth is, we are all artists practicing the art of living—all of us.

 

As an artist, The Muse continuously and endlessly encourages you with inspiration, new ideas and possibilities to do what you love: to cultivate your skills and to discover and share your talents.

 

But Make no mistake: The Muse is not simply handing out inspirational party favors. The Muse is in the business of waking you up and making you realize your inspirations.

 

Inspiration is not some elusive unicorn. It’s not something intangible. Inspiration is no more unique to you than breathing.

 

Because inspiration is the language of your spirit, feeling inspired is the sensation of experiencing your spirit—The Muse.

 

It’s by actualizing your inspirations that you live a life true to who you are. When your deepest desire is to make your deepest desires real . . . you’ve been Marked by The Muse.

 

As artists, we are all creators. We all have a wide range of mediums in which we create our everyday and contribute to the world around us, whether perceived as small or large works of art. We’re the ones creating our lives—every single day.

 

When you are Marked by The Muse, your life is your medium, and your mediums are many.

 

You create the experiences you want. You create your responses to the experiences you do not want.

 
The truth is, The Muse inspires us all, as artists, to create our own masterpieces—our lives.
 

Because if you don’t create what your ideas inspire, who will? If you don’t create the life you desire, who will?

Who will if you don’t?

 

Alas, there’s no listing in the phonebook for The Muse.

 

But there are two here: daughter and mother.
