Harold Harnish is an artist/craftsman living in the Ozarks of southern Missouri. He was a pioneer in the developing art of custom automotive painting on the East Coast in the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s. He painted many award-winning show vans, and hundreds of vans, trucks, street rods, boats, and motorcycles. His work has been featured in Hot Rod Magazine and other van and bike magazines.
Harold is now retired from Automotive painting. He enjoys living and working on his remote homestead, and finds inspiration there. Creative endeavors include: painting on rocks and saw blades, nature photography, and scanner art. He created several art gardens which feature lots of glass, metal, rocks, and unusual plants. Harold also installed a few small art gardens for public buildings.
Other areas of interest include music, and he is a DJ for community radio station KZGM in Cabool. He plays the piano to relax and occasionally in public. Projects form his woodworking shop include unusual birdhouses and rustic benches.
He is also creative in the kitchen, especially enjoys baking...persimmon cookes, cranberry pecan pies and a Buche de Noel are signature dishes. His pineapple rum cakes are locally notorious.
