Professional Biography

Steve Jensen is a Designer, Artist & Academic who has operated between the boundaries of Art and Architecture for nearly twenty-five years.
This balance of professional practice and education has created a unique body of work that has enabled him to formulate a strong design identity and educational aptitude.

Through the development of his professional practice, he has discovered a new perspective can be gained through further distillation of an idea to both compliment and improve an initial brief or a project's goal.

Through applying practical skills and experience, researching, resolving and constructing his own projects he is led to believe that a practical approach to the creative process is essential.
