It took 50-year-old Aino Jensen 30 years to find an outlet for her creative urge, but once she did, there was no stopping her. The media was glass, and, though the then 30-year-old mother of two (today three) had no training or qualifications, it was, she explains, love at first sight. “Art is not something that I’ve become interested in; art is something I have inside me. Ever since I was a young girl, I have had this desperate desire and longing to create and express myself through art. I had so much inside me that I wanted to let out, but I couldn’t find the right outlet. When I stumbled across glass art 20 years ago, it finally happened. It was love at first sight, and the passion and joy of creating have never diminished.”
