Seeking an artistic logo for creative clients

Entertainment & The Arts
I privately coach artists, writers and performers in all areas of the creative process and the aspects of their lives that support it. Everything from creative blocks to idea development: enhancing creativity, organization, managing stress, staying connected to inspiration, heightening self-expression, collecting supportive rituals, tools and practices, accountability, deepening intuition, cultivating mindfulness and greater wellbeing... and on. I chose the name 'Muse Lab' as an expression of this balance between imagination/inspiration and process, masculine/feminine, left/right brain. Also because it suggests a space where you can come workshop your relationship to inspiration/muse in an engaging way. I work with both men and women, and even though I have a female client leaning, hope to appeal to both. My demographic is open as well, but is more heavily 30's-50's because of discretionary income to apply to coaching. I work with anyone who values their creativity enough to invest in it, up to screenwriters with Netflix shows, etc. My clientele is discerning and talented, so I am looking for something that reflects that sophistication and artistry. I love everything to have an extra unique or special touch. Professionalism with heart and spirit :)
See attachment for my 3 logo directions. - YES to somewhat literal/illustrative or abstract - YES to hand drawn (not required but love) - YES to the sense of my vibe/work you get from my website and homepage www.muselabcreative.com - YES to sophisticated, expressive, elegant, professional mixed with fantasy - NO to cutesy or craftsy (my pet peeve is logos that look like clip art), corporate or cartoonish - NO to colors that don't fit in with website/aesthetic (it's squarespace, so I can subtly shift tone/shade/banner color if needed to go with perfect design, but nothing crazy) - NO to scientific interpretations of "lab" (don't want to see magical things spilling from a beaker haha) If you prefer to submit an original idea - A logo that visually integrates this concept of combining inspiration with 'process': either through symbols, illustration or abstract design elements. Although, if there is a heavier leaning between the two it should always be the inspirational element as I wish for clients to be inspired by the prospect of coaching and re-igniting or supporting their own creative spark. Excited to support another artist and their work! Happy to answer any questions or clarify ideas before you get started :) *** DO NOT ENTER STOCK OR CLIP ART

And then… they selected a winner!
Tamarenko was beyond a delight to work with. She was thoughtful, creative and really put herself and her spirit into her work. I really enjoyed every step of crafting ideas with her and she was extremely patient and open. Besides making the development of the design a beautiful and poetic process, she was communicative, dedicated, attentive to detail and completely reliable. Really the best of both the artistic and practical aspects of a design collaboration! I highly recommend her... especially if your project is meaningful to you :)
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
