    PETROGLYPHE GALLERY ARTIST SPOTLIGHT

    Howard Rees

    Lily Pads
    Howard Rees’ favorite place to be is at the end of a paint brush, whether it be in his studio in the California Gold Country or capturing a scene in a European Village.

    Howard’s lifelong interest in art led him to the Art Center College of Design, in Los Angeles, where he earned his Bachelor in Fine Arts Degree in 1964.  Howard accepted a position with Ford Motor Company in England, and while he was there he became intrigued with the “Old World” atmosphere that shows in his paintings today.  After leaving England he moved to Detroit and continued to work with Ford, designing the ever popular Mustang line.  Cold and long Michigan winters drove him back to California and to The Mattel Toy Company where he designed many of the original ‘red line’ Hot Wheels cars.

    In 1975 he chose to focus totally on his love of painting and since that time has developed his career as a full time artist.  Today he paints with equal proficiency in both watercolor and oil, and loves the unique challenges each medium presents.  His subject matter extends to Americana, local Gold Country scenes, intimate European street studies, and magnificent vistas.

    He conducts fun-filled, informative workshops and “Plein Air” classes  throughout the United States and Europe.  In addition to his workshops, Howard has produced three instructional DVDs, ‘What I Have Learned about Painting with Watercolor’, ‘Painting From Photographs’ and ‘What I Have Learned About Painting With Oils’.

    Artist’s prices beginning at $575.00
