Biography

Born in Minneapolis, David Jensen studied art at the Minneapolis School of Art and Design and after moved to Sonoma Valley in 1998.

Most of David’s work is derived from the lush and varied landscape of Sonoma Valley.  He was often found painting in fields, as these country scenes had a special place in his heart, stemming from his upbringing on the rural diary farm in Minnesota.  His paintings are about creating mood with color and texture and less about recognizable objects. He had a long career as an award winning illustrator and received awards from the West Art Directors Club, The Los Angeles Society of Illustrators, and was featured in Print Magazine.

The French Impressionist were a primary influence in David’s work.  They allowed us to see the individual brush stroked that created the beautiful illusion of light and texture.  Also evidently appreciated is the Abstract Expressionist, who were able to conjure strong emotional responses through the use of color and texture, leaving the subject matter entirely secondary.
