I'm Muse. Thanks for stopping by my page!

I don't always have time to respond to individual comments, so if you've dropped a comment thanking me for faving your art - you're so welcome! Keep up your amazing work!

I'm originally from the tiniest state in the United States, although I tend to flit all over the place in search of adventure, inspiration, and kicks. Right now, I live in upstate New York, where I am studying music (I'm a classically trained mezzosoprano). Although I am primarily a singer, I also play harp, percussion, and piano, and am hoping to pick up cello and taiko in the next year or two.

When I am not composing world, electronic and symphonic metal music, I'm usually writing books, taking photos or else posing for them, sewing, making artisan jewelry, or consulting at my arts studio, Nightkat. I run a seed company named Maenad Creative, providing web and social media consulting, arts management, business planning, and content and community generation and management.

I also run a meta charity named Brightest World (on days I have time!), a community dedicated to fostering and promoting humanitarian causes. Look us up on Facebook, and you can follow us on Twitter at the following (

I've been terribly absent from dA as of late, and I've missed it. I will try to check in with y'all a bit more often.

What I've been doing:

1. Composing a LOT of music - I released a new album for my darkwave project, Sirenne, about a month and a half ago and it's been well received. Thank you for your support and patience on releasing that latest work - it took me way longer than expected!

2. Building my makeup artistry skills alongside building my Mary Kay business. If you want to check out some MOTDs (Makeup of the Day) I've done, go here! (and you can order from me at

3. Preparing to finish my AA in Liberal Arts

4. Planning two trips to Scandinavia in the upcoming year

5. Preparing a move to Oslo or Helsinki by the end of this year

6. Working on my next novel for Clans of the Dark Masque.…

So yeah, I've been super busy! Looking forward to seeing lots of awesome work from everyone on here in 2016. Happy New Year, my fellow deviants!
