Geo McKay was born in Prince Rupert, BC and raised in Greenville. Geo was born into the Beaver Tribe of the Nisga’a Nation and is the son of a very influential artist, Patterson McKay. Geo developed an early interest in North Coast art while assisting and learning from his father. Fueled by his natural creative urge, he soon began carving on his own. Geo’s father felt that along with First Nation’s art, education was also very important.
“For one to be given the gift of carving is not a task, but an honour. To be able to bring out the old and present into the future is a lesson on its own.”
