Jamie Jensen began his journey in San Francisco, California as an apprentice woodworker fabricating boat interiors. As the years went by, Jensen wanted more freedom of expression. He became interested in mixing metal with wood to create furniture art. In his wall art, Jensen incorporates river rock as a central theme, bringing both strength and softness to each piece.
Jensen begins each piece with rust-patinated steel applied to a wooden frame. He sets a unique variety of elements into each piece, from river rock to patinated copper, gold, and silver leaf. Each piece is finished with a clear coat of lacquer.
Jamie Jensen is a self-taught artist.
