How long have you been felting for?
A little more than a year.
what is your inspiration?
I like to try something new and continue to challenge myself. Positive feedback from my customers is also very motivational.
what calls you to needlefelt why is it your chosen medium?
I always liked needlework and when I first stumbled upon needlefelting I decided to give it a try. It is not only challenging, but also helps to relax and makes me feel better. The more I do, the more I like it.
what do you hope to achieve in the future with needle felting?
Almost all of my items are not very large. Regarding my hopes, I want to make something really big this year, something that can be used for exhibition. More realistic items is another goal for me. Also I'd like to try making hand dyed wool.

Some people I know sell jewelry and watches on Ebay and I decided to try selling on Etsy - marketplace for handmade.
