School of Jewelry & Metal Arts

A native of Chicago, Karen Chesna earned her MFA in Sculpture/Metals from the Academy of Art University, and holds a BA in the History of Art and Architecture, with a concentration in Indigenous Art, from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She spent many years working in the Anthropology Department of the Field Museum of Natural History and considers this a major influence on her sculptural jewelry, artist books, and small metal-based mixed media sculptures.
