Heather Howe grew up on the Lizard Peninsula near Cadgwith. After school she completed a Foundation year and a B.A in Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art and Exeter University.
After leaving art school Heather Howe worked as a practising artist in the South East of the U.K having one of her first solo shows at the Century Galleries in Henley-on-Thames at the age of 22. Her career has been very diverse in the subsequent years including commercial design work, private commissions and exhibitions throughout the U.K and overseas.
Heather Howe has always had a strong emotional connection to the landscape and changing weather and strives to communicate this in her work. This feeling of engagement with her subject obviously translates to many people as her work continues to be much sought after by collectors.
