California-resident and Montreal-born artist Ane Howard, an abstract figurative mixed media artist and eco-fashion designer, tells an emotional and imaged story in the portraits and landscapes she paints. Using deconstructed form born out of the expressionist movement, bold paintbrush, and contrasting hues of colors, she imbues each brushstroke with meaning to evoke moods and ideas. Following a lifelong exploration of different art forms, Ane is dedicated to full-time painting. Katrina Gomez, Art Curator at the International Art Museum of America, said about Ane's work, "Being a self-taught artist, Ane Howard demonstrates an impressive range from figurative to seascape and abstract. Ultimately, her work explores what it means for one artist to fully connect to her environment and expresses what others in the culture cannot. "

Ane's vivid oil paintings have been shown at various Art Galleries in California, such as the well-known Five 3 Gallery, Claudia Chapline Contemporary Art Gallery, Teri Lang Studio, Marin Society Artists, and Art Works Downtown. Her artwork has also been exhibited in the London Tube and Berlin Metro as part of Public Art. Collectors own her work in North America and Europe.

Ane had a solo show at the International Art Museum of America in San Francisco. The exhibition entitles California: A Love Affair  ran from July to September 2021. View the Virtual Tour of her exhibition here.
