MEMBER Fran Howard Portrait

Fran Howard




I was born in Sussex in 1935 but lived in South Africa from 1946 to 1973. Since then I have lived in London. For many years I have visited Eastern and Southern Africa.

I took up painting in watercolour in 1991. For a time I had the pleasure of being tutored by the late Charles Longbotham RWS. I spend an increasing amount of time painting in the field and my Mortlake studio.

I particularly enjoy painting water and look out for river landscapes, coastal scenes and seascapes. I find my subjects mainly in the UK, including the Thames, on which I live, in Provence, Eastern and Southern Africa.

I have exhibited in the southern counties and in charity exhibitions in London, and at the Chelsea Art Society's annual exhibitions since 2005.
