Artist loves working with dramatic light
After graduating from undergrad at the University of Science and Arts, Hollis Howard left Oklahoma for Mexico where he lived while finishing his Master of Fine Arts at the Institute de Allende, in San Miguel de Allende, Gto. But it wasn't until he returned to Oklahoma a year later that he first began to feel like a real artist.
"It wasn't until I got back from Mexico that I really started to feel like this was what I was going to do with my life," Howard said. "I went to an art show with a friend and we saw some watercolors, and I had taken watercoloring in school, and I just knew it was what I wanted to do. I knew that I wanted to be a full-time artist."
