Jens Carstensen immigrated to the United States in 1950 at the age of twenty-four. After working in the New York/New Jersey areas, he settled down in Dane County, Wisconsin, where has lived since 1967. He felt he "belonged" in the Upper Midwest (Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan) because the landscape, with its rolling hills, farms, and bodies of water, reminded him of Jylland, where he spent his early childhood.
