About J Howat
There are no upcoming events
I like to paint contemporary landscapes. Inspired by nature the paintings are a conversation piece in any setting, integrating abstract and sometimes surreal art concepts with earthy tones and organic subject matter.
I am based in the Scottish countryside and I have a love of the land and of horses, neither of which can be ignored. Animals and wildlife feature strongly in my work and I like exploring a narrative. Paintings are often a result of a dream I've had.
I paint mainly in oils and like to do the odd experimental acrylic or watercolour too.
