About Me

Gerry Jensen
Visual Artist
As long as I can remember I have been drawing and painting exploring all types of mediums and techniques. I love painting different subjects – structure, form and vibrant colour fascinate and challenge me. Lately I have felt inspired to experiment with strong colours and to become more impressionistic – using bright pigments, drawing lines and textural elements. I paint every day and find inspiration in everyday things - these items often have pride of place in my paintings. I am mainly self-taught and find every day a learning experience and there is always something new and wonderful that happens. I paint mainly in Pastels, Acrylic and occasionally Watercolour – I find it exciting to try new techniques and mediums exploring what each can bring to a painting.
Over the past few years I have won over 80 awards including several Major Awards.
I was born in the UK but now live in Launceston Tasmania - a little piece of heaven on earth.
