Visual artist and printmaker Anita Jensen (born 1957) graduated from the School of the Art Academy of Finland in 1985. Jensen, alongside Annu Vertanen, is among the generation of Finnish printmaking artists that renewed the art and paved the way for printmaking that favoured large formats and was space oriented. Jensen also spent a significant part of her career as a teacher of intaglio methods at the Aalto University.

The works Smoke rises from the water and Overflowing - enlivening are examples of the artist’s preference for reduced nature thematic and use of dark shades and dramatic compositions characteristic of her early work.
