Stratoz was pleased to find a J for me, Alfred Jensen(1903-1981), since his jazz doodle was set to Christine and Ingrid Jensen.   Alfred Jensen incorporated diagrams, numerical systems, textiles from Guatemala, and the color theory of Goethe into his paintings.  His work contains both the mandala like circular forms and quilt patterning that I am drawn to in my own work.
