Gift of the artist

 
Laura Howson’s current interest is computer art and the digital graphics medium as a vehicle of artistic expression.  Her computer paintings and photographs depict scenes of the world in which we live, as well as abstract digital photographic details of nature, featuring the Great Falls in Paterson.  Her photographs, many of ice formations (“ice sculptures”), reflect her intention to capture scenes of the beauty in nature which are temporary and unusual.   

               
Laura Howson received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas in Austin where her thesis focused on “Dreams in Children’s Art.”  Howson  teaches art in Paterson  and is an adjunct professor at Passaic County Community College.  She served in the U.S. Peace Corps as a Crafts Instructor for the Red Cross in Monserrat, an island in the Eastern Caribbean.
