In 1995, she received a degree in ceramics from the Glasgow School of Art in Edinburgh, Scotland. Howarth makes landscapes and still life oil paintings that use bright, light pastels to fill each piece with an uplifting sense of warmth and whimsy, creating a celebration of home and family.

Howarth currently lives and works in Galveston, Texas and Taos, New Mexico.
