Contemporary artist Allie Jensen uses art as a tool, not as a talent. Utilizing meditative art techniques such as repetitive linework and dotwork, Jensen advocates mindfulness and self-awareness. Primarily working in ink, spray paint, and acrylic, she stacks and layers small components including lines, dots, and circles to create organic masses that echo the «theory of complex systems». Complex systems theory is concerned with identifying and characterizing common design elements that are observed across diverse natural, technological and social complex systems.

This theory highlights the astounding interconnectedness of the universe. When applied to visual art, it is a therapeutic and healing act. This practice promotes either a free-flowing or focused mental state which aids Jensen in constructing a greater sense of control over her personal thoughts, feelings, and actions and allows her to respond constructively to the world around her. It is her goal to continue using art as a meditative outlet and to develop awareness of how accessible, inclusive, and beneficial art is.
