“I build my sculptures on the fly, my decision making being a combine effort of experience as a sculptor, as an artist, and of decision making aimed at creating aesthetically pleasing forms." - Mike McKee

"I put my heart, and my soul, my life experience into every creation, with the intention of creating something beautiful, something amazing, something that I will love.” - Mike McKee

“I have always had a fascination with rocks and minerals. The natural beauty of the polished rocks displayed in stores and used in jewelry was very alluring when I was young. I remember as a child, dragging my mom and dad into every gem and mineral shop we walked by on the plaza, and I was constantly on the lookout when we traveled for new and interesting rocks that I could collect. Learning how to carve stone gave me a happiness I wish to share with the world.” - Mike McKee

“When you spend as much time as it takes to create one of these pieces, you build a relationship with the stone. You fight with it, you tell it your thoughts, and you share your emotions with it. This relationship can be found in every piece I create, with the story changing from piece to piece. I love to create, and it is this love that I wish to put out there to share with the world.” – Mike McKee
