After a two-year stint teaching English in Japan, traveling Asia and Europe, and making a life for herself in Northern Virginia, Marta has met various artists who have shown her that trying something new is scary, but yields beautiful results! She believes that with some self-confidence and a sense of humor, there is no such thing as failing - there's only improving. Marta loves paintings of long walks on the beach, Malbec, and enjoys helping others have fun learning something new!

                                    Lauren is excited to be part of the Muse Team!

                                    Growing up locally in Northern Virginia, Logan is an illustrator whose love for the film/entertainment industry is showcased through his illustrations and paintings. He is a very outgoing artist who has no problem stepping up and helping customers individually to make sure they create something they will be proud of. With his digital illustrations, it's obvious to see he has a liking towards the "weird" and "horror movie" genre but that doesn't mean he is brooding in a dark corner somewhere! Logan has taken up a strong interest in the art of special effects and is working to become a creature designer and sfx make up artist for the film industry. He hopes to share his love for painting, design and anything in between with others in order to bring out the inner artist in themselves.

                                  • Em Ruf

                                    Em grew up in Northern Virginia, spending weekends with her grandmother at the National Gallery from as early as she can remember. Despite many attempts by her grandmother to go to other exhibits, Em always ended up in front of the colorful paintings of the Impressionists. That early influence has stuck to this day. Just like the Impressionists, Em is inspired by the beauty of nature and loves painting outdoors in the bright sunlight. When she's not at Muse, Em can be found in her studio, on her bike, or out painting in one of the many scenic spots along the Potomac.

                                  • Freddy Duran

                                    Freddy always had a curiosity and passion for art at an early age and took the challenge of self-taught art. Born and raised in South Florida and of Mexican decent, a lot of his inspiration came from the vibrant Latin culture. As he grew older he branched out to learn different mediums such as pastels, ceramics, photography, playing the piano and painting. While still exploring and experimenting with the different mediums, painting will always be his personal favorite. Freddy is never afraid of any new challenges.

                                    Kayla grew up in Northern Virginia and discovered her love for art at a young age. She is always looking for ways to express her creativity whether it be through painting, illustration, writing poetry, playing instruments, writing music, singing, or acting. While her artistic style and medium vary, strong use of symmetry and portraiture is clear throughout her recent work. She is honored to be able to have an opportunity to grow as an artist and share her passion for creation and expression at Muse!

                                  • Marni Manning

                                    Living abroad in Asia for several years greatly influenced Marni, as a North Carolina-born artist. She draws on her experiences there, like hiking the mountains in Jinju, South Korea, trying new and delicious food, and learning how to interact in a culture vastly different from her own. Through these difficult and wonderful experiences, Marni was ultimately motivated to make art that reflected humans' fundamental need for acceptance. Marni's art is primitive in style and unapologetic in attitude; she often chooses to make art on subjects for which she is particularly passionate: civil rights (particularly women's rights), chronic illness, and celebrating heritage. Marni enjoys working with watercolor and acrylic to convey modern folk art, crafting a bold and colorful narrative.
