In Greek mythology the nine muses were beautiful young goddesses who personified Science, Literature and the Arts. The Nine Muses were created to give inspiration, knowledge, artistry and music to the ancient world.
Emma O’Neil founded The 9 Muses (UK) Ltd in early 2014 after a lengthy time working with emerging, established and famous artists. The company has since commissioned larger projects which have a wider corporate social responsibility with added focus on Education.
The Nine Muses projects have included producing documentaries, publishing books, producing original music scores and sponsoring the world’s first Phd on Brother Walfrid, the subject of a commissioned Nine Muses oil painting, by Peter Howson.
The Nine Muses name is particularly fitting as the company’s goals, products and practices cover many mediums and ‘art forms’. They aim to bring awareness of Scottish and Glaswegian history, through art with the hope of giving inspiration and faith.
