Born in Malaysia of Aussie and Scots parents, Howard is an emerging artist who is lucky enough to live and work mainly in Australia. His passions are for colour and movement and the strange wonder of what we’re seeing – in people, places and objects. 

Howard has a particular interest in impressionistic plein air landscape painting and in portraiture in oils and pastels - taking inspiration from artists such as Monet, Cezanne, Serov, Augustus John and Sorolla as well as many other contemporary artists. 

He enjoys the never-ending challenge of attempting to master the tonal richness, subtleties and daring of oil as well as the freshness and vitality of pastel. Somehow to balance subtlety and boldness. Painting outdoors gives that extra sense of life, sometimes!

Howard currently works mainly outdoors and from his Artarmon studio. He studied at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, the Royal Art Society of NSW and with Studio Escalier, France.  

Howard’s works are held in prestigious private collections in Australia, UK, France and Vietnam.
