Steve Jensen

(American, born 1955)

Seattle-based artist Steve Jensen creates carved wooden and metal sculptures. Growing up on his father's fishing boat, his artworks are influenced by Norwegian carving, boat-building, and fishing traditions. He notes, "I come from a long tradition of Norwegian fishermen and boat builders. The chisels I use have been passed from my grandfather to my father to me. The craftsmanship of my work speaks to the universality and the timelessness of carving."
