Featured Artist - October 2011: Jo Fitsell
I view my artwork as a path to the deepest parts of myself. It reflects my internal thoughts, emotions and ideas.
My early pieces were rooted in the landscapes of my childhood. They explored the importance of place and the ways it is expressed in the stance or temperament a child takes on early in life. My current work reflects my spiritual connection with beauty and the deep love I experience when alone in nature.
My goal is to express the invisible by making it tactile, translating what I sense into pieces that can be felt as well as seen. I gain satisfaction when my work resonates with an internal humming or rhythm and allows me to gain insight and come to an understanding about what it is I am creating.
