Biography


Howard attended the Masters of Fine Arts program at Tufts University and studies at the School of The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA and continued his studies in France at L'Ecole d'Art Decoratif de Nice, where he won a National prize in photography. 
 
After a stint in the Merchant Marine, Howard returned to Boston to work as a photographer and Art Director, but the love of the sea eventually led him to Connecticut to manage a boatyard and raise a family. Ultimately, he realized his dream to sail around the world and paint.  After restoring COMET, a 1946 Sparkman & Stephens 52’ yawl, Howard completed the circumnavigation in 2001.
