Brent Jensen is a fine art Impressionist oil painter, whose passion for art began at an early age. He followed his dream by earning a B.A. in Art from the University of Utah. He owned a successful architectural illustration company for twelve years. During that time, he rekindled his love for studio and plein air painting. Since 2007, Brent has devoted his full-time energy to oil painting. He travels internationally for inspiration with many of his compositions resulting from numerous paint trips throughout America. Living in Northern California also affords Brent many opportunities to paint cityscapes, landscapes and seascape scenes. Fresh flowers, fruit and various vessels collected over the years create his inspiration for his still life oil paintings. Brent is a featured artist in the book, "Oil Painting with the Masters" and has been featured in published articles in "International Artist", "SouthwestArt", "Art of the West" and "American Art Collector" magazines. He is frequently included in National competitions with professional art associations such as the American Impressionist Society (Signature Member); the American Society of Marine Artists (Signature Member); and Oil Painters of America. Museum exhibitions include: Bennington Center for the Arts (Bennington, Vermont), Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History (Santa Barbara, California) and an eight museum tour with the American Society of Marine Artists. He leads paint demonstrations at art clubs and through workshops. As a traditional impressionist style oil painter, his painting technique uses a loose approach, limited palette, and objective perspective. This allows any two viewers to interpret one of his paintings differently. He believes a properly selected composition that is well-executed brings a lifetime of enjoyment to a collector.
