. 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 Expressionisms and Impressionisms painting style. I like Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh's painting style...and through both greatest painters, whether by visits to the museum or read their history books, has increased my knowledge of how to paint professionally and adds techniques and the ability to find all beauties around me - and to express these beauties on canvas or paper.

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 art's teaching merely in theory; mostly because of how difficult to find various kind of painting equipment such as canvas, oil paint, brushes, and medium there, These Materials only found in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Surabaya and Bali.. I've 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 doesn't 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. Some of my works are the 'thought' process right down to the last stroke. But sometime go outdoor for painting. I used both brush and palette.. Winsor & Newton (winton) is my favorite oil color so far... but every now and then I work in acrylics or watercolors. I can spend hours to a couple of weeks on a painting, especially in oil. I paint what I like and if there is something caught my attention whether it real or imagined scenes of life, something from the book or something from the photo - I'm going to paint. Each subject was determine me how 'it would be painted. I do not intentionally painted in 'style', it just manifests itself. There are another power at work! Each piece has been finished for me is a celebration and a great thanks to my Creator. My painting is the essence of me.
. I usually got painting equipment when I make a few days gospel mission trip to Yogyakarta ( Central Java).
