Fall in love with the Artist within and help your Creative Spirit soar!

Witers, photographers, painters, journal keepers, sculptors, musicians, poets, and everyone who wants to live life as a work of art will find inspiration in this wonderful work:

  • Become more productive and confident through stirring affirmations of 'The Artist's Creed'.
  • Discover a deep and satisfying form of self-expression through easy exercises, personal anecdotes, inspiring quotations and pictures.
  • Learn tricks to overcome 'Artist Blocks' and find new ideas from the shared experiences of other artists.

Committing to our own creativity is an act of faith, a promise that we will keep at it despite our fears and failings and despite whatever obstacles we find in our paths. It is a promise to believe in ourselves, to honor the creative process and to open our lives to the gifts of the 'Muse'.

Jan Phillips is an award-winning photographer and feature writer, whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Utne Reader, and many other national and regional publications. She developed Marry Your Muse during workshops sponsored by Women's Writing Guild.

From Part One - 'What matters is the Newness' (p. 59):

" The artist Wassily Kandinsky writes in 'Concerning the Spiritual in Art', that 'the artist must search deeply into his own soul, develop and tend it, so that his art has something to clothe, and does not remain a glove without a hand . . .'. The artist must have something to say, for mastery over form is not his goal, but rather the adapting of form to its inner meaning. "
