Realist, Joe F. Howard was born in a small town in Tennessee and reared in Columbus, OH. He has an innate artistic ability that was discovered early in life. Throughout his childhood, his hands were always working on some creative art form. An accomplished painter, today his tremendous visions and abilities speak to all through the mellifluous movement of his paintings and visceral texture of his beautifully crafted bronze sculptures. Because of Howard's breathtaking paintings and sculptures, this master of multiple media has been referred to as a modern day Michelangelo.




Joe Howard became an artist over his father's staunch objections. He wanted his four sons to be successful. The prosperous blacks he knew were doctors and lawyers and he wanted his sons to become one or the other. He was so adamant that when Joe, his first born, chose art school, he refused to support his education. But Howard won a four-year scholarship to Columbus College of Art & Design*




Since graduating from Columbus College of Art & Design Joe's works have been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe. He has been creating art for numerous private and commercial clients such as Ronald McDonald House, the State of Ohio, Mount Carmel, the late author Alex Haley, Xerox, Ohio State University Cultural Center, Liebert Corporation, Hydroplane Inc. Dave Thomas (Wendy's) and country music legend, Conway Twitty to name a few.
