This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From East Dorset, Vermont, Nancy Howe has become a recognized wildlife painter whose subjects include birds, animals, landscapes, and figurative work. In 1990, she became the first and only woman to win the Federal Duck Stamp Competition, her work was exhibited at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, and she was named among the Top 100 in the Arts for the Parks competition. In 2004, she received a Juror's Choice Award at the exhibition of the American Academy of Women Artists.

Her painting, "Puffins," earned an Award of Excellence during the Society of Animal Artists' exhibition in Ontario, Canada in 1994. Her "Cynature" print won an award in 1995 from the Printing Institute of America, and in February, 1999, she was the featured artist of the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition in Charleston, South Carolina.

She raised her family on a farm in rural Vermont, supporting the children by herself. After her career took off when she won the Duck Stamp competition, she switched from acrylics to oil paints. Howe basically taught herself techniques and how to use light, color and values from studying books and old issues of "American Artist." Howe's focus also changed as she at first was consumed by the detail in her compositions and now she pays more attention to her painting. Howe also chose to go back to her first subjects landscapes, still life and portraits that she had painted along with her wildlife art.
