Woodworking has been in Janis’s family for several generations dating back to the first settlers in Sevier County. She grew up helping her father in his wood shop and learned her woodworking skills from him. In the 80’s she taught herself pyrography incorporating it into he woodturnings. For over 20 years she has been a full time craft artists, working with her sister in their father’s old wood shop in the mountains of Pittman-Center.

Her work is a mixture of traditional Appalachia turning along with contemporary designs.

Janis has both studied and assisted at Arrowmont. She has been featured on “The Heartland Series.” She is also a member of Foothills Craft Guild and TACA (Tennessee Association of Craft Artists), and has been the recipient of Purchase Awards at the Best of Tennessee TACA and the Arrowmont Juried Biennial 2001 and 2003. In 2009, Janis was invited to be a demonstrator in the Utah Woodturning Symposium. There were 8 countries represented at the Symposium.
