"I started Miniature Inspirations
as a way to share my artwork with the community around me.
I want my art to inspire, impact, and help others whether it is
a pet portrait of a beloved pet,
an animal sculpture, or a fandom creation."

Maggie Mei Lewis was interested in art at a very young age. As an aspiring artist, she loved creating art and allowing her work to tell a story or convey a message. She wanted to create a business that would allow her to share her artwork and creativity with the rest of her community and even worldwide.
She has worked in various mediums including graphite, pen and ink, acrylic, oil, watercolor, bronze, aluminum, mixed media,and fiber art.
Her interest in needle-felting began after watching a video that explained the unique technique of needle-felting. She became fascinated with the process and looked up articles, rented books, and looked at pictures of how to felt and create soft fiber sculptures.
Vending at Magfest 2018
Maggie began to create and design her own felted pieces of art in 2011.
At first she started by showing her close friends and family,
but then when people saw the needle-felted creations, they suggested opening a shop and selling them.
This gave her the inspiration to open an Etsy shop and share
her creations and art with a bigger community.
She opened an Etsy shop and began her business
Miniature Inspirations in 2013, and have been enjoying sharing her fiber-sculptures, designs, and art with the her local community and even worldwide.
