Howard Butterworth is a renowned Scottish artist and has lived and painted professionally in northern Scotland since 1968. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother supported him over the years and his work can be found in her personal collection. Producing mostly oil paintings, his style captures the atmosphere of light and colour that is so unique to Scotland. Many of his paintings are now published as prints, cards and giftware.
His work has increased in popularity worldwide, particularly his paintings of Scotland including those of native birchwoods, Caledonian pine forests, heather covered moorland and snowcapped mountains, with the lively waters and bridges of Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire.
Equally popular are his oil paintings and watercolour paintings of historic castles, such as Edinburgh Castle and Eilean Donan Castle, his coastal towns, seascapes, and city street scenes. His work spans the whole of Scotland.
