A native of Waco, Texas, Teri Muse, having received both bachelor's and masters degrees in Fine Arts, began her art career with paper-making. Creating her own paper canvasses, she was commissioned for large public spaces, including the Westin Hotel in Birmingham, the American Heart Association of Dallas, and Prudential Life Insurance of Chicago.

Teri began teaching art education in local DFW schools while continuing to pursue her talents as an artist. Always seeking new and unusual artistic ideas, she took an interest in the "encaustic" technique of painting with melted wax. It creates unusual luminosity and translucency and allows Muse to include papers and materials into the layers of wax, something she also likes to do in her acrylic paintings. Her collections of maps, fabrics, sheet music and postage stamps become a backdrop for her "asemic," or wordless, writing-linear elements running throughout her works for years and grounding them with the dual traits of strength and mystery."
