 Steve Jensen is an influential artist of the Pacific Northwest who has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. He was born and raised in Ballard, Seattle and studied at Cornish School of the Arts, where he has an endowed scholarship in his name through their fine art department.
Over 20 years ago Steve met Vincent Lipe, owner of Vincent Lipe Productions, a successful Seattle event management and production design company. They connected through their generosity and work with nonprofits and have been together ever since, marrying just two years ago.
The couple has supported Providence O’Christmas Trees since 2005, when Steve was the first Presenting Artist who created an original piece of work for the Gala. They have contributed to the O’Christmas Trees fundraising efforts in various ways for the past 20 years and have hosted many O’Christmas Trees events in their studio on Capitol Hill. 
Steve and Vincent generously support many organizations within the arts community and use their studio and home as a resource to assist nonprofits.

"We have always looked forward every year to the O'Christmas Trees events and the many activities that transpire throughout the year leading up to the Gala. We have made loving and sustained relationships with many of the kind people we have met. Healthcare organizations are the true community champions and promote health and equity through all humanity. Generosity is good for the heart."
