Over the years Ken Howard has won many awards and accolades for his work, including at the John Moores and John Laing Exhibitions. He is arguably best known for his studio paintings. Works which display a highly skilful almost painterly-sketch-like quality, working with the light which streams in through his studio windows.

Sadly Ken died in 2022, aged eighty nine, still working towards the end of his life.
