"I have been a studio artist for forty years, compelled and fueled by the creative energy I first experienced as an undergraduate pre-med chemistry major at Northwestern University when I started writing poetry." -Harvey Brody
Harvey Brody's arrival to art is a journey full of creativity. His early findings were through poetry, an encounter that led him to change his career path and pursue an M.A in English literature and embark on three years of teaching and Ph.D. work at the University of California at Riverside.
It was at UC Riverside in 1966 that Harvey Brody started working with clay, and it became clear to him that he was committing to a life of creative endeavors. In 1987 he began working with non-ceramic materials; this led to the collages and reversed paintings on plexiglass, creating a path to his current paintings on paper.
