A successful antiques dealer for more than 35 years, specializing in Americana and folk art, Helen Howard is perhaps even more accomplished as a folk artist.
Her period-style watercolors of sailing ships, as well as her naïve portraits and freehand theorems, capture the look and feel of original works with uncanny accuracy. If you have admired works by such respected 19th century folk painters as Ruth Bascom and Joseph Davis, or the later, nautically themed whimsy of Ralph Cahoon, you will surely appreciate the authentic feel of an original Helen Howard.
Her works are rendered in period frames, carefully selected from all over the country, and each has a distinct “feel” that could never be replicated. Helen then responds to the feel of the frame with an appropriate image. Helen’s clients, then, can select a singular, signed watercolor that can be a keepsake forever.
