I live in Rensselaer and have worked at the Jasper County Public Library system for 18 years as the Systems Administrator. I enjoy volunteering on the Main Street and Rock the Arts Committees. I am also the webmaster for my church website. I enjoy running and LOVE the beach.

Most of these paintings were done under the instruction of Amanda Call, owner of Starpainter Studio in downtown Rensselaer. I did not take art classes in high school, nor did I have an interest in painting until I saw a post on Facebook advertising a paint class at Starpainter Studio in September of last year. I signed up for the class, and immediately fell in love with painting! Since then, I’ve been to almost all of Amanda’s public paint classes.

If you have even a small interest in painting, I would encourage you to sign up for a paint class in the area. Amanda has monthly Wine and Canvas and Cookies and Canvas classes at her studio in Rensselaer. You may contact her at 219-964-9959.

I hope you enjoy my paintings.

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
