Sharon Jensen is a pastel artist working in the American Southwest. She is a Signature member of the Pastel Society and has exhibited in juried shows such as the New Mexico Masterworks, PSNM National and other National shows. She states:
"Upon visiting New Mexico and seeing the beautiful skies, wide open spaces and the mountains, I just knew I had to live here. Upon moving here in 1999, I immediately started painting the gorgeous sunsets. The immediacy and brilliance of soft pastels made them the perfect medium to interpret the vibrant skies
and the open vistas of this breath-taking land. My hope is that my work will convey to others what I experience; whether it be the quiet spirituality of New Mexico’s mountains, mesas, and many chapels, or the awe of a sunset or storm clouds gathering."
