About the Author

Author and artist Richard Harvey is an eleven-year primary brain cancer survivor and a fourteen-year melanoma survivor. He began writing the poetry in 20 Poems 20 Paintings A Creative Warrior's Journal in 2005, during radiation treatment. Insomnia from radiation therapy's side effects gave him the unique opportunity to process what was happening by using creativity. The ultimate goal is for you, the co-creator take what you learn completing it and share it with people you encounter that might need the kind of help that someone with insights like yours can benefit. We all become mentors.

Author and artist Richard Harvey is an eleven-year primary brain cancer survivor and a fourteen-year melanoma survivor. He began writing the poetry in 20 Poems 20 Paintings A Creative Warrior's Journal in 2005, during radiation treatment. Insomnia from radiation therapy's side effects gave him the unique opportunity to process what was happening by using creativity.


He discovered a love for advocacy while sharing these poems with other cancer fighters, survivors and their support people. Recipients strongly supported the way he was processing and connected with his messages. In turn, they shared his poems with people they wanted to support. He published a chapbook of the poems called Lemonade - Notes To Cancer, which went through several runs. He met hundreds of people in situations similar to his at cancer and brain tumor conferences where he volunteered to host survivor tables. At these gatherings he shared poetry and a large variety of empowering resources he discovered during his search for healing. Soon survivors and their support people were interacting and writing their own original words to process their challenges. The evident need for inspired communities of creative support in people around him motivated Harvey to create Healing Thorough Creativity workshops. Since 2009, he has been conducting Healing Through Creativity workshops working with participants ranging from sixth grade elementary school students to college students to varied cancer survivors, people who are in recovery and people who are not health-impaired but face major challenges like divorce and grief.

in 2013, creativity and connectivity again helped Harvey to process. This time it was a divorce. He found healing and reconnection with his true nature while he created many of the paintings for 20 Poems 20 Paintings A Creative Warrior's J
