This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Howard Bradford was born in Toronto, Canada on July 14th, 1919 and moved, at a young age, to Los Angeles, California.  He spent his youth raising chickens and growing dahlias, the influence of which can be seen in his later paintings.  In his 20's Howard was inspired to become an artist by his mentor Elwood Decker. 

After serving in the Army during World War II, Howard took advantage of the opportunity provided by the GI bill and enrolled in Chouinard Art Institute. While at Chouinard, Howard met Dorothy Bowman and they were later married.  The two studied together at the Jepson Art Institute and San Francisco Art Institute.  Howard and Dorothy settled in Big Sur and became a part of the thriving art scene in the late 1950's and '60's.  In 1960 Howard was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for creative printmaking. 

Bradford was a Lifetime Member of the Carmel Art Association.

Biography from Galerie Plein Aire:
HOWARD BRADFORD ARTIST STATEMENT: “My point of departure as a painter is directed essentially to things around me.  The sea, mountains and the landscape in general.  Sometimes I bring nature into the studio.  Although I am essentially a studio painter, plein air excursions are part of trying to extract some organic intensity I experience.  Distillation of personal observations into a cohesive and singular statement have been my intention for many years.”

EDUCATION: Chouinard Institute, Los Angeles, CA; Jepson Art Institute, Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco Art Institute, CA.
