“My work is a reflection of my truth: a reflection of my personality. I create according to my inner guide.”, notes Harvey. He gains his inspiration for his work from within – using vibrant colors to evoke the emotions he experiences both in the chaos of daily life and the beauty of nature. He paints what he feels, allowing his inner voice to guide every brush stroke. Through is work, Harvey’s purpose is to create artwork to inspire and uplift himself as well as others.
