Collection: Jammey Huggins
Jammey Huggins is a Southwest artist who was born and raised in West Texas. Even though she has been 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 sculpture. 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. Jammey producers her sculpture in limited editions and keeps the edition numbers low in order to retain the integrity of her work.
Jammey 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 Southwest. Her work can be found in both private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and Great Britain. Her welded sculpture, “Ethereal” is in the permanent collection of the Sculpture Garden of the Ellen Noel Art Museum. Other permanent collections include the Gaines County Historical Museum, F.J. Young Primary School, Seminole Jr. High School and Seminole High School, Seminole, Texas. Commissioned works are also accepted.
My art stems from a life long interest in Western and Indian memorabilia. I am devoted to portraying the people, animals culture and history of the Southwest. Studying, collecting, traveling and 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 creations. The spiritualism and mysticism of the West are at the roots of all of my pieces. I have always loved the outdoors, and even as a child I had an awareness of the many living creatures in my surroundings. I now see each one as an individual with many unique characteristics. It is the spirit of their lives and emotions, as well as the physical power and sensual form that they possess, that I try to capture in each of my works. I want my art to evoke memories and emotions from viewers as they relive their own experiences and surroundings. My work is done in an 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. My mission is to leave a part of myself and a piece of the West in each of my creations.
