My name is Jennifer Sellsted. I am a born-and-raised Calgarian, wife, mother, and pyrography artist.
I discovered pyrography in 2015 while scrolling through Pinterest. I came across a pretty monogram sign and thought, "I'd like to try that." So I picked up a soldering tool from Home Depot and began making monograms on large wood slices.
Shortly thereafter, I created an intricate henna feather. This was when I realized my love for pyrography.
To me, pyrography is meditative in the way that it requires a clear mind to focus only on that task. While my art has evolved from name plates to collections of artwork, the "therapy by fire" remains constant. The inspiration for each collection emerges from a different experience.
My artwork "Flowerpot Island" has been included in Pyrography Magazine 2020 and I couldn't be more thrilled!
Thank you for visiting!
