Harvey McInnes

Born: 1904  |  Died: 2002

Harvey McInnes. Painter. Zealandia, Saskatchewan. (B. Cobden, Ont.) Active mid to late 20th century.

Harvey McInnes began painting seriously in 1965;  experimenting with oil paints, pastels and coloured pencils. He painted pictures of life on the farm. In his words: “A lot of my pictures are made up just from scenery and things I remember from away back. Some of them I make entirely just using my imagination… I save small animal pictures sometimes and use them with my own makeup of scenery for a picture.” He is widely collected in Canada including the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
