I was born in Kingston upon Thames in 1969, and started welding at the age of fifteen. Devon became my home when I was twenty five, and I found that the pace of life here allowed me to be better in touch with my artistic side.
After working with other artists on their own projects, I soon became inspired and confident enough to show my own work, so I decided to combine my fabrication skills with my artistic flare and have been creating, exhibiting and selling my work ever since.
As a successful self representing artist who sells work internationally, I bring to you a selection of my contemporary, original, and abstract wall art.
I take pride in what I do and how I have been able to utilise my skills for a more fulfilling career, so can guarantee that any piece of art work that you may purchase, will have been crafted with love and will be a very high quality item. The Idea is for my work to last a lifetime and longer, offering you great value for your money.
Up and coming events for Jake Howard 2008.
If you like my work and are interested in details of where I will be exhibiting in 2008 then below are detail of confirmed exhibitions for this year, check back regularly as this list will be updated as and when information becomes available.
I will permanantly exhibiting my work at the Fushia Gallery Lee Devon UK.
I have shown my work in exhibitions before but it has always been my floor standing sculptures that have been on display, and the exhibitions have always been with fellow artists, so this makes my first exhibition a mile stone in my book, as not only will it be the first time that it is entirely my own work on display, but it will also be the first time that my wall sculptures have been shown in public.
I am really excited about this, as my work really needs to be seen by the naked eye, to be appreciated to its full extent, photographs of it are all well and good, but it looses so much of the colour and vibrancy of the piece, that I find it a constant let down as an artist, to see my work represented like this a majority of the time, so getting it out there, where people can take a good look and appreciate it fully for what it is, appeals to me greatly.
The first exhibition entitled ‘Time Well Spent’ has been named as such, because it is about how people need to have faith sometimes, in how others choose to live their lives, not everyone is suited to a 9 to 5 job or long, sleep disrupting shifts, or fitting in with the majority of societies ideals of how one should spend ones waking day. Very often I feel that talent gets lost and wasted in this world because people don’t have the support, to enable them to have the courage, to follow there dreams and achieve their goals, if they happen to fall a little outside of the norm. I want to spend my life enjoying what I do, to make my crust and I enjoy creating beautiful items of value, and I hope that people will desire them enough, to enhance there personal space and surroundings with them. This has proven to be the case as I now sell my work internationally and I feel that this it worth hauling my self out of bed for each and every day, not the tedious boring and mundane way of life that might otherwise be carved out for me, if I was to follow the advice of some of the people with out much colour in their souls!
