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.
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
