Karl Jensen was born and raised in the Rocky Mountains of Utah and grew up in an artistic community that has produced some of the most talented and prolific sculptors in the country. Sculpting professionally since the age of twenty-four, he is self-taught but had the privilege of studying firsthand the works of such past local masters as Avard Tennyson Fairbanks, Cyrus Dallin and Mahonri Young.
Karl’s work embodies the articulation of the human spirit, from serene moments of daily life to those of playful joy. He strives to capture the essence of an expression of a gesture, drawing the viewer in with an aura of a moment frozen in time. His work, ranging from small indoor bronzes to life-size outdoor pieces and fountains, can be found in collections across the country.
