Ken Howard was born in London and now lives in Cornwall near Mousehole, where his studio is in an old school. His association with Cornwall has been over a long number of years, and he was selected as one of the artists representing their work in A Century of Art in Cornwall 1889-1989 held at NAG (put on by Newlyn Orion & Cornwall County Council), that comprised 140 art works executed in Cornwall during that hundred years period. (A coloured photo of Howard appears facing p129, in Hardie 1995).
Strangely, there is no mention in Buckman (2006) about Howard's life in Cornwall in the otherwise excellent summary of his professional life and the numerous awards, scholarships and commissions that he has received. Howard is a Vice-President of the Penlee House Museum, and a Patron of the Penzance School of Art. Ken Howard is Professor of Perspective at the Royal College of Arts, London.
