What does inspiration mean to you?

Inspiration comes in many forms. Sometimes it is sparked by life experiences, history and everyday objects around me. I enjoy looking at art, in particular I find historical work inspiring as I imagine the stories and people connected to the pieces. I enjoy the artistic challenge of capturing the work in a new way, through my perspective, imagined story and style.
