Loren Howard


Loren Howard artist born in Windsor, Vermont and at the age of five my family moved across the Connecticut River over the famous Cornish/Windsor Bridge, to Cornish, New Hampshire. We settled in the area where the Cornish Colony of Artists thrived in the early nineteen hundreds. One of my favorite landscape painters, Willard Metcalf, was a member of that group of artists.


Maxfield Parrish also lived and painted in that area for many years. The historic and beautifully renovated country home of the sculptor, Augustus Saint Gaudens, with many of the sculptor’s works, is also there and is visited by hundreds of art lovers every year.


After graduating from High School in Windsor, Vermont, I enlisted in the United States Navy. The G.I. Bill helped me get through college at a small University in Bemidji, Minnesota. I received a Bachelor’s Degree with a Major in Art and a Minor in English. I did graduate work in painting and pottery at Saint Cloud University and sculpture and drawing at summer workshops at the University of Minnesota.


I taught art for twenty five years and, when I retired, I set up a pottery and did that for several years. During that time I continued to paint and four years ago I stopped the pottery altogether and since then I have devoted all of my time to landscape painting. Needless to say painting is my true passion. It is both challenging and rewarding.
