About the artist
Born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario, Robert Howson has resided in Guelph, Ontario since 1989. As a professional artist Howson has spent the last fifteen years perfecting his craft. Howson began his training at Lambton College and then the University of Windsor in the visual arts program. His portfolio is extensive and encompasses both corporate commissions and professional athletes including Olympic swimmer Victor Davis and hockey legends Bobby and Brett Hull.
“I’m proud to be the solo artist responsible for the Guelph’s Sports Hall of Fame portraits now hanging in the Sports Complex in downtown Guelph. And would like to thank all those responsible for organizing this great tribute of Guelph and giving me this opportunity to share my talent with this wonderful community.”
Howson’s strong fine art and design background brings a fresh and incomparable final product not only to the sport world but now to the equine portrait industry.
