An interview with award-winning artist E. Janie Altrogge

Lakeshore Artists

Award-winning artist E. Janie Altrogge has continued producing fantastic art as she battles major health issues during her extended stay at the Austinburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Austinburg. Janie is a long-time of the Lakeshore Artists group and has been a mentor to many members. We are proud to feature an interview with this esteemed artist on the Lakeshore Artists website.

“Being an artist can be so isolating. I don’t care about how you think you know, you’re going to learn something from someone because they observe from a different point of view. All artists need each other. We need to be a community.”
