Andrea Howson is an acrylic artist living and working in Belwood, Ontario. She attended Sheridan College where she studied and completed a Fine Arts program with Honours. Initially concentrating on the human form, her focus gradually shifted towards wildlife subjects stemming from her appreciation, fascination, and love of animals.
Howson’s work celebrates the contrast and asymmetry in nature in bright, bold colours. She strives to give each of her four-legged or winged subjects a personality that the viewer can connect with. With historical artistic influences including the work of Van Gogh, Matisse, and Chagall, her style of artwork is naturally fluid, dynamic, and often intensely colourful. Her paintings show movement, rhythm, and energy, and above all, bring the artist’s imagination to life on the canvas.
Howson’s paintings can be found in private and corporate collections across Canada, Europe, and Japan. Her work has been included in a variety of shows and exhibitions across Ontario and is showcased at nowords Art Gallery and Shop in Cambridge, ON.
