Jane-Allen McKinney, M.F.A., M.A., B.A., creates monumental sculptures in metal; figurative & clay portraits; smaller sculptures in bronze, aluminum, brass, copper, glass or wood; jewelry in precious metals and stones. I specialize in creating artwork for people and corporations that emphasize their uniqueness and strive to represent this through iconography utilizing lost wax casting, repousse, metal fabrication, slip rolling or wood lamination.
