photoHoward graduated in 1978 at Manchester Polytechnic with a BA(hons) Degree in Graphic Design specialising in Illustration. He then worked in London for several years as a freelance Illustrator before moving back North where he continued to work for Advertising and Design agencies.

Howard now creates paintings and drawings inspired by his surrounding landscapes in Cheshire and Derbyshire.

His work is underpinned by sound draughtsmanship, characterised by a heightened realism. Howard generally paints in acrylics either on linen or stretched paper and enjoys the fine qualities and textures achievable using pencil crayon.
