Harveys work has received worldwide recognition for its
timeless detail and brilliant artistry. His depiction of American
and English landscapes and architectural scenes are exciting
in their contrasts and their beauty.
Harveys landscapes are not sentimental, they are an expression of the artists deep feelings, that in nature, man can find wonder and grace. Maurice graduated from the Southend College of Art, Essex, England and also attended the London College of Art. He worked as an illustrator in advertising for over fifteen years in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the US. While in Canada, Harvey was commissioned to do a collection of paintings for the Canadian Centennial.
These paintings were then presented to the Parliament Buildings of all the Provinces.
Maurice Harvey lives on the Central Coast of California close to Carmel-by-the-Sea. There, he paints in the beautiful surrounding countryside for which the region is so well know.
He searches out old buildings, ranches, and rapidly disappearing barns. Harvey says, This is perhaps a final tribute when nobody seems to care and its about to be scraped off and gone forever, but Ive captured it on canvas and made it look beautiful even in its final days.
