Who Am I?

Welcome, Fellow Travelers!

I'M sandy brown jensen, 

and I dream in gold

I am Oregon photographer Sandy Brown Jensen, and I want to give you beauty and mystery. I want to give you something truly sublime for your home that will uplift you whenever you see it and get an astonished,“Wow!” from your guests.  

I stand for beauty. 

 My mind and heart want to remind us both of our highest dreams, our most evocative memories, and our deep, inner soul reflections.  

When I say, “I Dream in Gold,” I mean that, with your permission, I want to bring a quality of love into your life through art, poetry, dreams and stories. To do that for you, I have started a journal called “The Dream in Gold Journal.”  It will be published and, if you wish, delivered to your email inbox twice a month. 

My MFA is in Poetry, and I am retired from a thirty year career teaching college writing, so I have an equal pull to write as I do to make beautiful things. “The Dream in Gold Journal” will be like opening a soft, leather-bound dream journal and knowing you will only enter a world of beauty and thoughtful reflection.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Inspiration

I am a dreamer by nature, and I am interested in photographing those dreamlike moments between worlds; the hour before dark, windows that open into mysterious or suggestive interiors; the shore between sea and land—moments where one world somehow comes to an end and flows into something new.

The pandemic years sent me out on the trail, tracking the turn of the seasons. Am I the only one who has tried to hold on to the beautiful, passing days, only to have them slip through my fingers while the unrelenting news cycle grinds on? The lesson is always to be here now, while the sun and time wheel overhead, the grasses turn to old gold, then black and back to green, and new gold again.

Techniques

My collection of hand gilded photographs on transparency film or vellum, speaks from the shimmering halfway house of the soul. These images are familiar human geographies transformed by precious metals: gold and silver, copper and palladium, into something at once both rare and strange. 

Recently, I have also been printing my images on metal. To me, this has meant abstracting images to bring out their essential shapes. There’s something about an abstracted landscape full of color and vibrancy that looks great in a show-stopping place of honor. I have a big brushed metal 24” x 18” panel of “Doing Physics at Bob Beach” in my dining room, and I’m continually astonished at how it changes with the changing light.

TESTIMONIALS

“The reason this image captured me so completely is that after years of the dense, enclosing forests of British Columbia, my aspiration is to relocate to Alberta, land of prairies, coulees and open skies–warmer summers! Sunshine! This image is a forethought image of the open expanses I am craving, This image draws me forward.” 

–Bev Petow, East Sooke, British Columbia

“I loved “We Live in Old Chaos of the Sun” anyway, but then I read the poem you mentioned (“Sunday Morning” by Wallace Stevens) and thought of Fall Creek and Lowell and beautiful Oregon. 

During the first summer of Covid we went out swimming in Lowell, and it saved our sanity.“

 –Anne McGrail, English Instructor, Lane Community College, Eugene, Oregon
