Grethe Jensen is a contemporary artist/instructor whose work is abstracted, rich in colour, and approached in the spirit of exploration and experimentation, often moody. Her people are larger than life, the streetcars are up close, and all of her paintings have a powerful presence.
While always interested in art, her life as an artist followed an earlier life as a technical and corporate trainer. The creative switch started in 2004. Her arts education has been self-directed, non-structured and intense, including numerous workshops and classes with many different instructors. She is dedicated to a full-time studio practice, and she is living proof that there is nothing like “Just Doing It!” to enhance the learning and growing.
Grethe lives, paints and teaches in Toronto. Her award winning work is held in collections in Canada, the US and Europe.
