|Introduction||I have given the name, The Altered Muse, to my business and my art workings. It is the best way for me to describe what I do with what aMUSEs me. I am inspired by the innocence and romance in poetry and images of the late 1800's. I like the illustrations of early children's books and old poetry books. I collect early 1900's autograph books if they have an illustrated cover. Some of them have original drawings along with their chum sentiments. I put my inspirational matter with old findings and create altered art. I have a studio and workshop that reflect what inspires me. I teach Basic Soldering, Wet Felting, Encaustic Wax Overlay, and some Found Objects Jewelry. The lovely feline creature pictured is Lily. She was born a bobtail and is very verbal. All in all I have a good life and get to do the work I am interested in. I am blessed by God everyday and have learned to thank Him in all things.|

No. What a funny question!
