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.
