Lynn Buckmaster is a local artist, born and raised in N.W. Indiana. Lynn is a member of the Jasper County Art League. At present, her works can be found in several private collections across the United States.

Lynn was encouraged at an early age to explore her artistic nature and creativity. With ongoing encouragement from many family and friends, she continues to develop her drawing and painting skills, influenced by her love of nature.

Her painted works are generally created in acrylic as she enjoys the versatile nature of that medium. Lynn enjoys painting both realistic and idyllic landscapes with natural color combinations infused with touches of bolder colors, and occassionally hidden elements. Lynn has a wide variety of these and custom order pieces you can view online.

Lynn also instructs painting party events. Her hopes are to promote a love and appreciation for nature and the arts, while encouraging others to try creative activities and develop their talents.

Being artistic is “a gift” I was blessed with and my parents being artistic may have something to do with my enjoyment of art.

I was involved in art thru my school years. I’m a member of the Jasper County Art League.

Pottery, watercolors, acrylics, oils, colored pencils, leather, dried gourds are just a few mediums I have worked with. I’m always interested in trying something new.

In late 2015, I moved into my new studio, “Garden Edge Studio.” Here, I have been able to have painting workshops and other crafty classes.

Sewing, baking, gardening, are just some other interest of mine. We have 5 grandchildren and I hope to pass my love of art on to them. They enjoy doing projects in “the studio.”

Any questions, please contact me at 219-866-3339.

Seeing nature and other fascinating subjects through the eye of her camera lens, Claudia Pletting uses the power of photography as a means of expressing her love for nature, creating highly personal impressions from natural, everyday scenes through photography.

Interacting with other artists and combining her love and knowledge of photography with their expertise has given Claudia confidence and inspiration in looking at things through the eyes of her camera lens to provide a whole new perspective on the world around her, also expanding her artwork to include watercolors, enjoying their delicacy and transparency.

During the months of September and October, Claudia is sharing her art and photography by displaying pieces of her collection on the artwall of the Wheatfield Library. Don’t miss the opportunity to see Indiana in all its glory through the eyes of this talented artist.
