Janet Kittinger's Profile
Everyone has something in life that they ‘need’ to do. I need to express myself artistically. Through the years I’ve had many ways that I’ve expressed myself. When my boys were young I began hand-painting clothing before it was a popular art/craft show thing. I’ve made beads and pins with Fimo and Sculpey clay for many years. Tile mosaics kept my attention for a while. Recently I also became very involved with wood burning (pyrography) on wood and gourds.
About 10 years ago, with the death of a loved one, I needed something that I could totally immerse myself in. I took a pottery class at a city recreation facility. I was hooked! It provided me with something to totally concentrate on and lose myself in. When carving clay hours seem like minutes. Carving has become my ‘me’ and meditation time. At night when waiting for sleep new carving patterns and ideas flit through my head…
