Steve Jensen has been a working artist for over 40 years. His current body of work, “VOYAGER” are boats that are meant to symbolize a voyage or journey, perhaps it is the voyage to the other side, or the journey into the unknown. Steve comes from a long tradition of Scandinavian fisherman and boat builders. He grew up on and around his father and grandfather’s fishing boats in the Seattle shipyards. From 2015 through 2021, Steve has solo exhibited at “SAM” Gallery, at the Seattle Art Museum, The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, Foss Seaport Museum, Tacoma, WA, Vashon Center for the Arts, Northwind Arts Center, Port Townsend, WA, Schack Art Center, Everett, WA, San Juan Island Museum of Art, Friday Harbor, WA, and Gallery at the Park, Richland, WA and The Clymer Museum, Ellensburg, WA. This work was featured by Channel 9 “Art as Voyage” Steve Jensen’s Nordic Heritage.
