Biography of Konni Jensen

Hi, I'm Konni Jensen, I want you hear my story straight from the horses mouth :)

My parents say that I started drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon starting out with the usual doodles and progressing to fine graphite portraits at 10 years old, having my first shared exhibit with adults in high school.
I grew up in a small town in the Northern Denmark surrounded by beautiful nature and oceans, it was very easy to find inspiration to draw. I won many drawing contests and was inspired to try paints.
I skipped ahead a couple of years of school and finished 2 educations early - business/trade and make-up artist - and started to travel. My first stop was Oxford, England, I was so inspired by the architecture and art there, I could have lived in the national museum in London. I lived in Oxford about 6 months then headed to the US to travel around a bit and get inspired. Afterwards I settled in Paris and Nice for about a year before coming back to the US again in 1994. France was what solidified art for me. After visiting the Louvre and the Picasso museum I was in love and decided to trade graphite for more colorful and fluid paint.
I have never received any training in art, it's all self taught, I love to experiment with different mediums and different methods of applying paint. Lately my favorite is to paint large paintings with giant brushes and small paintings with palette knives. I love the unpredictability of the strokes as they are harder to control, it's a mixture of freedom, love and luck as I capture an emotion or likeness.
My goal is to draw people in and make them feel something: love, hate or inspiration, it really doesn't matter what, as long as it invokes something in them, then my job is done.

I have been lucky enough to get featured in a few magazines such as Huffington Post and the Acrylic Artist Magazine and Pratique des Arts.
In 2016 I was honored to be featured by request at the Polition Art Exhibit in Los Angeles as well as in the TV series Criminal Minds.

You can find much of my art in private collections in Canada, USA and Europe.
