Tis the season for an assortment of Christmas options

Hey ya’ll:

Well I have been the busy elf and my trusty helpers had to take a nap since I worked them so hard.

Exhausted helpers







There was a piece of wood that I’ve stared at for a little while and when it eventually told me what to create…wood does that sometimes…this is what happened.

The perfect view. Made on olive wood. – SOLD







I decided to try my hand at making furniture. It was an adventure and I’m really happy how it turned out. Making furniture is a lot of work when you don’t have proper tools. Perhaps Santa will get me some 🙂 This piece is now up for sale.

Tis the season for wood burning…and beer

Hey everyone:

So I’ve been getting busy doing my favourite indoor things: being creative, listening to Christmas music and enjoying my favourite Belgian beers that are only available this time of year. My usual health challenges have kept me at home a lot but I’m making the best of it. Although I’m slowly working on painting ornaments, wood burning has kept me busy and I’m loving every minute of it. Here are the recent pieces. Most are custom and others have sold but it gives you an idea of what can be done and what might make the perfect gift. Oh, and I’m doing cheese boards…yup…they’re a piece of art and can be used for some yummy cheese. I’m doing a few different styles so there are options.

If you want to order something just contact me through my website at http://janymitgesfinearts.com or check out my instagram at

Sanity through wood burning!

So if you have read my previous post you know that I’ve been under the weather for a bit now. The saga still continues and hopefully I’ll get test results soon and be able to move forward from this current situation. That being said, being isolated at home most of the time and trying to maintain some sanity I’ve been busy wood burning. Loving the new type of art and it’s a little easier on my brain when I can’t focus on mixing colours of paint. Most of the pieces are sold but there are a couple of treasures available. I’ll be burning more pieces so if there is something you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to drop me a message.

Hope these bring a smile to your face, inspire you to get outdoors and live a life full of passion.
