Artist’s Bio
Jerry McKellar graduated from the University of Washington, DDS degree, June 1969

Primarily a self-taught artist, his vivid imagination combined with input from life experiences, travel, and nature influence his creative spirit. McKellar’s education at the University of Washington dental school provided him with extensive studies of facial and human anatomy that has helped greatly in sculpting the human body. He began making jewelry in dental school, and continued throughout his dental career to experiment with different art forms, including painting, scratchboard drawing, and sculpting. He has been seriously sculpting in bronze and steel since 1987 and retired from dentistry in 1994 to pursue his art career full time. He has taken patina classes, and has expanded on that knowledge with years of experimentation. He currently does much of his own patina work, including his life-size and larger sculptures.

Characteristic of McKellar’s work is his realistic style, embodied with power and movement. His work varies from extremely fine detail to smooth muscle studies emphasizing the human form.
As an accomplished and inventive artist, he is constantly expanding his style and subject matter. Many monumental and life-size sculptures have been installed in public and private collections.
