Julia Jensen divides her time between southern Vermont and Nantucket, and her oils reflect her deep connections to both regions. Her vibrant yet restrained palette and the quality of light in her paintings harken to the Skagen and Funen painters of her ancestral Danish homeland. Jensen’s oils are gestural, expressive, full of energy and motion. According to Art New England, “Julia Jensen is a landscape painter whose canvases border on the mystical . . . Jensen’s command of space is masterful, and the sky seems to be stretching into infinity.”
Julia’s paintings are featured in many private and public collections including the State of Vermont, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital, and the University of Vermont Medical Center. Her work has been exhibited at the Kent Museum, the Brattleboro Museum, the Vermont Arts Council Spotlight Gallery, and many others. Several of her paintings are currently on display at the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, via the Art in the Embassies program. Reviews of her work have appeared in Art New England, Artscope, Vermont Arts Guide, and on Vermont Public Radio.
