Hi, I'm a painter and illustrator living in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. I grew up in Richmond, Va and received my BFA from VCU in Communication Arts & Design. I then moved up to NYC and received my MA from NYU in Studio Art/Painting. I've been here ever since! I started painting custom murals in 2003, for residential and commercial sites and I paint sets in the film business (USA Local 829). I exhibit and sell original work and a selection of prints and products in my Society 6 shop - Society6.com/AllynHoward and in Blip Blop Shop on Etsy. I'm currently working on series of designs for home decor, fabric companies, gift & stationery and art for the children's market. I'm also working on stories for picture books. I welcome the opportunity to illustrate other people's stories, as well. My art and designs are available to license on product. I'm excited to share that my 1st collection with Oopsy Daisy Fine Art for Kids is now available. I stay pretty busy, but this is what I most love to do. I feel very lucky!
