Jammey is a Southwest artist who was born and raised in West Texas. Even though she
began sketching and painting from a very early age, she did not begin sculpting until 1982.
Since that time she has worked with stone, bronze, clay, polymer, and welded sculptures.
All of her bronze sculptures are cast using the lost wax method. In this way, all of the details in the
original are retained in the reproduction. Her sculpture is produced in limited editions and
keeps the edition numbers low in order to retain the integrity of her work.
She holds a degree in art from Texas Tech University, with graduate studies at the University of
Texas of the Permian Basin and Manhattan College in New York. She participates in both
invitational and juried shows throughout the United States. Her work can be found in both private

stems from a life long interest in Western and Native American memorabilia.
I am devoted to
exploring the historic ruins of the Southwest and Mexico have provided the foundation for my interest in
the arts and now are the sources for my unique creations. The spiritualism and mysticism of the West
are at the roots of all my paintings and sculptures. I have always loved the outdoors, and even as a child
I had an awareness of the many living creatures in my surroundings.Whether at home,with jackrabbits,
box turtles, and coyotes, or traveling and observing dolphins, eagles and bison, I realized that each is an
individual and each possess unique and individual characteristics. It is the spirit of their lives and emotions,
as well as their physical power and sensual forms that they possess, that I try to capture in each of my works.
People of the West are also very prominent in my works. Their personality combined with historical
accuracy is my goal. I want them to be anatomically correct and evoke memories and emotions from the
viewers as they relive their own experiences and surroundings. My work is done in a realistic style, although
I do simplify some forms so they become more stylistic. Symbolism also plays a large part in the incised designs
on many of my animal sculptures and vessels. My mission is to leave a part of myself and a piece of the West
in each of my creations.
