    • Artist Biography

      Judy Kensley McKie

      American • 1944

      Judy Kensley McKie is an American designer best known for her whimsical furniture, which often features animal forms and a combination of woodworking and bronze casting. As McKie’s woodworking career progressed, she moved from carving animals in relief onto the surfaces of cabinets and tables, to carving animals out of the body of the form itself, becoming the arms, legs and back structural supports of her designs, to fully realized animal sculptures incorporated into her designs that appear to be in movement, simultaneously living within the object and among its users.
