Tim Howe at Mirada Fine Art, near Denver, Colorado

We are absolutely thrilled to present Tim Howe to Colorado!

Tim Howe at Mirada Fine Art, near Denver, CO
Born in a country where awesome beauty abounds, Tim Howe was surrounded by the vastness and overwhelming majesty of New Zealand’s landscape. It is here where he was first inspired to express nature’s limitless splendor through his art.  Howe graduated from the Wellington School of Design, in Wellington, New Zealand, studying a variety of disciplines including fine art, illustration, graphic design, photography and printmaking.  After graduation, Howe immigrated to the United States and established his design studio in San Diego, CA.  However, after traveling throughout the United States and Europe it became apparent that in order to capture the beauty he experienced, then his love of nature and art were to become irrevocably intertwined.

Howe’s current works, a contemporary interpretation of landscapes, incorporate a dramatic use of color and texturing while capturing his subject matter with a unique contemporary flair.  His landscapes seem to exist outside the frame and stretch beyond the canvas. With vivid accents and lively vigorous brushstrokes Howe continues his search for new images of familiar subjects.

“As a landscape artist, I am naturally inspired to paint by what I see in nature. Since I come from a strong graphic design background, I tend to draw upon this experience in creating my paintings. I utilize the disciplines of both impressionism and abstraction.” The result is a varied body of work that skillfully blends nature between the two seemingly opposing viewpoints.

“I’m predisposed to thinking of images in terms as either positive or negative shapes, while isolating the most important colors.  I see this as a more graphic and more contemporary way of painting. I find myself using nature’s elements, along with its’ shapes and images, and subsequently interpreting them on canvas in a bolder, more graphic way…at times utilizing exaggerated forms and colors for maximum effect.”

Howe is an ambitious painter who will never limit his subject matter, his techniques, nor his stylistic development. This philosophy, along with his aesthetic spirit, will always allow him to bring fresh interpretations and new energies to his work.

  1. These are amazing pieces. I love how Tim Howe captures nature often with an explosion of abstract color as a background - such as in Autumn Revelry. I must make a trip to Mirada Fine Art gallery to see these pieces in person. Thanks to Steve Sonnen for his great collection of art.
