Michael Howard

Painter in Oils


After graduating from Chelsea School of art then making Automata for 12 years I spent 20 years teaching art. I recently left my last post as Head of Art at Rugby School in order to paint full time.

My  recent paintings are an emotional response to what I experience and observe when walking in the hills around Brecon or working directly from the model in the life room.

 They are topographically truthful and a figurative representation of what I witness. However they are really much more about the marks, colours and confident gestures that I intuitively use and I am more interested in the vitality and energy of my chosen materials. Hopefully the paintings hold a strong individual identity as well as echo a particular reality.
