About the Artist
Candace Jensen is committed to realizing a culture profoundly informed by deep ecology. She is an interdisciplinary visual artist, writer, printmaker, calligrapher, activist and practicing Tantric.
Jensen has exhibited work in Vermont, Philadelphia, San Francisco, New York, and Antwerp, Belgium. Her writing and artwork have been featured in numerous curated publications and anthologies, in print and online. She is a current artist member at Amos Eno Gallery, one of the longest continually running artist collectives in New York, where she has collaborated as an exhibiting artist, curator, and salon coordinator since 2018. She joined the Board in 2019.
Jensen earned her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2018, and her BFA from Tyler School of Art in 2008, both in Philadelphia. She has completed over 1000 hours of advance study in Tantra, feminine form yoga, ayurveda, herbalism, and ecological agriculture, and maintains a personal practice and a student-educator relationship to these teachings.
Her recent solo exhibitions in Philadelphia, PA and Brooklyn, NY, both featured large bodies of visual art and writing rooted in the tradition of illuminated manuscripts whose content highlights ecoliteracy, deep ecology and empathic writing.
The artist lives and works in Southern Vermont, part of unceded traditional lands of the Western Abenaki Peoples, N'dakinna, where she is establishing an artist retreat and residency space with her partner, the artist Owen Schuh. The residency is dedicated to foster resilience, community, regenerative culture and regenerative food cultivation. She is a dog mom of a rescued cattle-dog and Catahoula mix, Skyebear.
