Painting, printmaking and drawing have been cornerstones of Jill Jensen’s work. She has used them separately to create finished works of art and since 1998 and has combined them in her fiber based work. Beginning in June 2001, Jensen started a weekly practice of making small art quilts and journaling on the back side of the quilt. One shape is chosen for the entire year. In 2017 she decided to create her weekly quilts as a single time line to mark the passage of the year. Excited with how this timeline worked, she is continuing to use this method to carry on with her journaling and maintaining a regular studio practice.
Jensen’s work has been included in regional, national and international exhibitions and twenty one-person shows. She has been a fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in both of their locations (Virginia and France), and has had eighteen artist-in-education residencies.
