Howard Phipps studied Fine art at the Gloucester college of Art in Cheltenham from 1971-75. He is both a painter and a printmaker, but has a special interest in wood engraving. He has had seventeen solo exhibitions and been included in several group shows including 'Nature from Wood' at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath (2002).

A member of The Royal West of England Academy since 1979, and The Society of Wood engravers since 1985, Howard has also been a frequent exhibitor at Royal Academy Summer exhibitions. He has in addition received the Contemporary Print Award at the RA, for a colour engraving, and in 2004 received the Landscape engraving prize at The National Print Exhibition in London, for the second successive year.

Howard has illustrated a number of books for publishers such as Bloomsbury Ventury the the Folio Society. His particular interest however is in landscape, especially the downs of Wiltshire and Dorset, with their deep coombs and beech clumps. He draws directly from observation and aims to produce an image that has a recognisable sense of place and that is not simply topographic.
