THEME
The artist’s muse is one of the most romanticized figures in art history. From lovers to spouses to friends inspiration comes from many different individuals, maybe something different for you. The relationship between an artist and their muse can be intuitive, complex, and private. This deep relationship drives the creative process, enhances it, and guides the artists into creating their beautiful fantastical worlds. Whether it is inspiration from a person, a spirit or a personified force, it is the fuel that feeds the fire of an artist. Show us your muse through your perspective.
