Mirth & Magic
PeaceMuse.com is the personal creative blog of teacher and wonder-filled artist Virginia Masson, the Peace Muse. Virginia is the owner and founder of the Great Lakes Center for Intentional Creativity, a community art studio open to all in Plymouth, MI.
"The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. The hunt to uncover those jewels—that’s creative living. The courage to go on that hunt in the first place—that’s what separates a mundane existence from a more enchanted one."
A self-taught artist with a commitment to help create a more peaceful world, Virginia is inspired by and strives to produce art that moves the human soul and guides the heart to compassion.
Using charcoal, pastels, watercolor and acrylics she illustrates the beauty of the lives that she witnesses. Moved by the stories of beloved friends and family as well as strangers from around the world, Virginia works to portray the emotion that is found in the moments when souls struggle as well as the moments that they triumph.
Life is a story in pictures.
