Helen A. Jensen was born and raised in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. Her family’s home faced the expanse of Lake Michigan and she learned to love and respect its moods and vagaries. It also provided subject matter for her creative seascapes. “When I was a little girl, the lake fascinated me because I couldn’t see the other side.” Helen’s family was musically inclined. Her mother performed and taught classical music; her father, the violin. They recognized their daughter’s potential in her drawings and sketches and enrolled her at the Layton School of Art, now the Milwaukee Art Institute. Her first teacher was the renowned artist, Gerritt Sinclair. Helen completed her education by attending Milwaukee Downer College, the International People’s College in Elsinore, Denmark and the Alliance Francaise, Paris, France.
