Where dreams, inspiration and artistry come together


Howard Curtiss

Arizona has been home since retiring and I very much enjoy the numerous southwest painting opportunities here. Colored pencil is my specialty and, to a lesser extent, pen & ink plus combinations of the two. Most of my art is based on personal photos and observation ranging from southwest landscapes, native plants, animals & birds to local architecture.

Though my education was in engineering (BS & MS) I have always been interested in art, in fact my passion for drawing began in elementary school. Recently I have taken many art classes &workshops plus joining several art organizations including SAAG, the Colored Pencil Society of America and the Tucson Colored Pencil Artists Assoc. I have exhibited in many galleries and exhibits (some juried) and am actively creating new art.

I have many more artworks available than shown here. Prints or giclees and some originals can be purchased: call Howard Curtiss at 520-444-3279 or
