When I was a full-time musician/singer/songwriter (see this old article about INHOUSE) I had such a problem with listening to other female performers. It wasn't that I didn't like them, it was that I didn't want to be influenced by them. I didn't want to have their voice in my head when I was trying to find my own. When it comes to needle felting, I thought I should try and do the same thing, but I can't seem to avoid falling in love with so many other felting creations. I decided instead to let them influence me. Maybe not my voice but definitely my ambition to do great work. Let them teach me that there are style choices that are original and moving. Here are some of the great pieces that have inspired me to go home each night and work on being the best I can be at this craft. Please visit my gallery.
