I'm a non-traditional dimensional needle-felter as well as sculptor of oddjects from a variety of materials. My work populates private patron nooks and cubbies, cubicles and public galleries from here to Timbuktu. I've had a variety of educational experiences including a background in Computer Sciences, am a certified Drug and Alcohol Therapist and once did accounting for Ford Motor Company, none of which contribute one teensy-weensy bit to my current creative endeavors. Suffering from a life-long unbridled case of wanderlust, I've lived for many decades outside the USA in countries which include Mexico, Haiti and most recently New Zealand. I'm currently living a happy hermitty existence in the cultural wastelands of West Central Minnesota.
I'm a mother of one very precocious 19 year old third year Uni student and the owner of a 10 pound fur beast named Foxxy.
I also am a painter, 3D developer,...assorted other stuff. Actually, I'm fairly loath to speak about myself evidenced by a considerable lack of blog postings.

The Dolly Mama says:
"Oh my gosh...I just noticed...I have never written my testimonial for Kit!!
She is just the most lovely, kind, wonderful, creative AND TALENTED lady ever!! I started buying her art a while back..it is hard to remember BK (Before Kit) ..my life must have been so much more drab.. She has livened it up and made it sooooo fun and cheerful.. I am so grateful for knowing her and having furry bits of her in my home!! (Meaning felted art toys..in case someone is reading this and doesn't know) LOL>. I look forward to many years of watching her talents develop and grow and I am anxiously awaiting a book...She has her own language which is So much better than any I know!!!
Hugs to Kit..."

Bent Objects says:
"Cute is an adjective that can be used in a derogatory way. It also is a word that is bandied about so carelessly that at times it is nearly meaningless. Nevertheless, there are times that the word is a perfect description. Kitgraphics little creations are the epitome of "Cute" to their very core, in the very best possible sense of the word.
Tremendously enjoyable work."

"Kit Lane's little creatures are a source of great joy and laughter to me. I have looked through her photostream more than once now and am amazed by the endless stream of creativity and wit coming from this wonderful lady! Thank you for sharing your genius with the world Kit!"

"Kit Lane is a larger than life beacon shining from the hinterlands with an easy grappling of the process of sifting and organizing words to describe her felted muses and her spatial constructs. She has more genuine life experiences than a quartet of gypsy galaxy globe hyper-stumpers. What I'm trying to say is, "How can you help falling under the spell of Kitty's witty wacky sublime subterfuge? How indeed!""
