'The Marshes' by Eddie Howard


Eddie Howard studied Fine Art (BA) at City and Guilds Art School, London. He was awarded the Worshipful Company of Painter Stainers Scholarship in 2018 and was shortlisted for the ACS Studio Prize in 2020. In 2022, he joined the Royal Drawing School where he now teaches drawing on The Young Artists programme.

Eddie Howard's art explores the intricate web of relationships within the natural and human landscape. Drawing inspiration from human connections within the natural world, he is influenced by the compositions of Titian and Fra Angelico, the textural brilliance of Van Gogh, and literary figures such as Nan Shepherd and Robert Macfarlane. Titles of his recent works, like 'BeeQueen’, ‘Gleamy,’ and ‘Planets,’ all draw from dialects referenced in the writings of these authors.

Often working in a scale larger than life Eddie works with a tactile mix of materials; papers, oil pastels, pencils, wax crayons, and watercolours. Drawing or painting directly from observation, he engages in a conversation with his surroundings. Eddie often works in collage, using the layered, kinetic nature of the medium to mirror his evolving understanding of the essence of the particular subject that he is working with.

His recent series of works feature large portraits in which he attempts to “find the landscape in the portrait and visa versa”.

Eddie’s work invites viewers to engage with the human spirit within the landscape, sparking curiosity and encouraging a deeper exploration into the beautiful and complex relationship between people, flora, fauna and local history.

'The Marshes' by Eddie Howard




Artch was established in 2020 by artist Lucy Kent as an artist-led platform dedicated to promoting art with purpose.  We direct a large portion of our sales to artists and charities, challenging the traditional art market paradigm.

“We strive to dismantle art world barriers, ensuring art is accessible to all. We believe in the power of community: and that artists joining their voices collectively can affect meaningful change and have a positive impact on the world around us.’

Lucy Kent


How do I hang a new piece with works I already have?

We love mixing in new works with existing are in your collection. It can be a great way to do this as part of a gallery wall or a specific place on it’s own. Buying more contemporary work and hanging this alongside traditional work you may have inherited, is a great way of modernising a space and giving these more traditional pieces new life. Our advice would be to have a common thread that runs between the 2 pieces, that ties them together - this could be similar tones or colours, or a similar theme or subject in both the works.  

Does art make a good wedding present?

We have lots of pieces that would make brilliant wedding presents. Buying art as a gift is such a meaningful present and will forever be a talking piece for that couple, and tell a story of the people that bought them that piece and remind them of their wedding. Prints are always an easy and affordable wedding gift. Or if you want to club together with some friends and buy an original framed piece, you will definitely win the prize for most unique gift!

How do I choose a frame?

This is a very favourite topic of ours - we LOVE framing!  How you frame depends on the space you’d like to hang the piece in.  If you are hanging on a neutral wall, we love to go for a colourful frame. And using an interesting moulding, be it reeded or bobbin, is a great way of adding texture to a room.  For works on paper I love a deckled paper edge - in this case I love to float or surface mount the paper, so you can see this deckled edge and then a simple wood frame. If you are trying to make a space more contemporary, framing can be a great way to add to this, like a tray frame on a large canvas piece. I also love framing traditional art works in modern frames and vice versa; a modern little print in a really traditional old antique gilt frame.

Do you sell gift cards?

Yes we absolutely do - this is the perfect gift solution for that person who either has everything, or you just can’t choose which artwork to buy for them. A lovely gift for someone to choose exactly what they would like from our large collection of art work.
