Biographical Statement: Helen F. Howerton 918-494-5994 Studio Helen F. Howerton, knew from the age of 8 that art was her life’s career. Drawing birds and animals was a passion that grew into painting, now including sculpture. Taking inspiration from her study of animal anatomy and sketches of nature, Helen shares her individual interpretation of the spirit in each animal. “May the viewer feel the awe I feel for nature when viewing my art. In our busy lives we often miss taking in moments in nature that bring us beauty and peace...the forever changing color of sunrise and sunset, the sudden appearance of a deer from the forest, the softness of falling leaves cascading gently to earth, the exuberance of the new born calf or the devotion in a faithful canine. Life is full of free gifts that feed our souls. My work reflects some of these moments, capturing a gesture, speaking to us without words.” Helen is a native Tulsan. After earning a BFA degree she was a commercial artist for Ok. State University followed with years as a free-lance illustrator for Waterfowl Magazine, Oklahoma Wildlife Magazine while designing hunting video covers.
