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.
