My name is Jason Sentuf. I am a Pastor of a Church in Indonesia but Painting is my hobby as well. Thank God that he has given me such a talent since I was Child.. I Never follow a formal Art Education or any painting course - because painting is my natural hobby. I am more inclined to paint the Landscape, animals and human body since I was in primary school. I have been influenced by some Europe Expressionism and Impressionismí painting style. I like Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh's painting Ė style. After graduated from Bible High School In 1975 I was appointed to be a civil servant in 1977, and served as Bible teacher at one of public elementary school in Jayapura, the capital of west Papua Province for 23 years . Every years I have the opportunity to make both Christmas and Idulfitry greeting cards ordered by my students.. The principal of the school saw that if there re some artistic talent of painting in me, so he asked me and appointed me to be an art teacher apart from being primary task as a Bible teacher . In 1989 - 1992 I was asked to be an Art teacher of several High schools in Jayapura. But all of my artís teaching merely in theory; mostly because of how difficult to find various kind of painting equipment such as canvas, oil paint, brushes, medium there, These Materials only found in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Surabaya and Bali.. Iíve got retired so early in 1999 on the basis of personal request due to the Church Organization expansion to South Kalimantan (Borneo). Here, in this new region I could find myself as I am. Being a pastor, focus to Church service is a must, but it doesnít limit my hobby of painting. I usually have my spare time and spent a few days to paint when I am in mood. It is not difficult to find painting equipment anymore. Winsor & Newton (winton) is my favorite oil color one. I usually got it when make a few days gospel mission trip to Yogyakarta ( Central Java).
