A member of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals), she has a strong comprehension of cutting edge techniques required for artistic expression through the use of the computer. She is currently a 3D animator at Victory Studios in Seattle.She won a Telly award for her 3D animation and stills for the movie trailer “Ladies Who Lunch”.
STEVE JENSEN –
Artisans’ Works and Sculpture
For over twenty years, Jensen has been developing a body of sculptural work derived from his experiences based on both heritage and contemporary circumstances, and his surroundings, the abundant beauty of the world's available natural resources and the precariousness of the relationship that we maintain with them. It is this relationship that powers his carvings, paintings, and contemporary designs. Jensen’s sensitivity for the world around him and those who live and die within it is conveyed in his work. He has received numerous awards including the Morris Graves Fellowship and the Poncho Artist Award in 2002 and has shown his work in solo exhibitions throughout the region. His work is in both public and private collections. Locations of Jensen’s public art installations include Hekinan City Hall, Japan; the Edmonds Waterfront, Everett Events Center; UW Medical Center; and the University of Alaska.
