I like the challenge of learning and evolving that creating provides. I get pleasure from seeing something take shape and from FINALLY creating something I can be happy with. I like that little adrenaline rush of achievement. Bettering myself, or rather, my craft, inspires me. I make animals for others to provide them with joy, or solace, or just a smile, because I know what it's like to love an animal and the need to have something solid to capture their spirit. My pets and my love for them is my biggest inspiration.
