Melbourne Paperific 2010...meeting my idol

I just had a brilliant weekend working at the 2010 Melbourne Paperific for Scrapware Australia, the people were so friendly and excited...in fact they were so excited that we had the security marshalls keeping check on my swelling crowd...yes I had a crowd! It was amazing and so exciting to have over 350 people sit and create with me over the three days I was there.
I have met some amazing people in my life, and in my artistic journey but there is one woman who has been pure inspiration to me, a woman who through her generousity of knowledge has shown me that there are no boundries if I look at the big picture. My ideas of art are born from that attitude. I am really blessed to know Jen Crossley. I have been a follower/stalker of hers for as long as I can remember and finally I got to meet her in person. Jen is exactly the person she appears to be, she is honest, bright and bubbly and is down to earth.
Who inspires you?
Sarah Fawcett and Jilly Groves are a couple more Aussie super stars I would like to meet.

you inspire me.. you and that Holtz dude .. lol... actually mostly you. he makes nice things to buy.. you make wonderful things to look at. My art changed when i met you. no more flat paper pieces for me. everything has texture or a 3D element. I wish I could be in Australia to go to some of your classes. i still look at things youve made and think.. how did dhe do that? I want to do that...
