Marian Howard has been a full time artist for over 42 years. She presently makes her home in Morristown, New Jersey, but is a native of Savannah, Georgia. She has exhibited in many “One Woman” shows as well as group exhibitions. Her paintings reflect floral birds, African motifs or people of color as well as mixed media works and landscaping. She enjoys painting a wide variety of subjects, always searching for ways to grow. The original “Young Indian Mother & Child” is presently part of a permanent collection at Medgar Evers College, Brooklyn, N.Y. “Young Indian Girl” is in the permanent collection of AT&T of New Jersey.
Ms. Howard expresses her love of humanity and nature and truly paints from her soul. Her paintings are in numerous private collections in countries such as Russia, Africa, Spain and throughout the United States. Her work also graces the walls of City Halls (Apopka, Fl. most recently), colleges and business offices.
“I’ve been a visual water-color artist for more than 43 years, always giving my best, trying to give my PATRONS high quality, professionalism and great emphasis on originality, while taking pride in preserving my integrity. In my work, I give dignity and honor.
From the Southern exposure of my people in their everyday existence, to the roots of their African heritage, in their eyes tell a story of the past and present, of great joy and pain, with love in their hearts and always with a willingness to forgive.
I hope my work has been able to touch your soul, give you a sense of joy and pleasure, and enhance your life.
Painting has given me the greatest of satisfaction in being able to take a sheet of watercolor paper, paint and brush to create a piece of “Art” for Art’s sake. I will continue to create and dare to be different. For art has no color, it’s about what touches your soul…
I thank GOD each day for my gift and pray that I may continue to share it with the world, enhancing your home with my work…”
Pictures here are representative of a much larger body of work. The Gallery sells Marian’s images framed and will be glad to forward pictures of framed work on hand and/or frame to individual taste.
