Howie was born in Syracuse, NY. His childhood exploration of the forests and abandoned quarries of central New York encouraged his sense of wonderment and discovery. He moved to Providence in 1998 to attend RISD where he studied sculpture and photography. He is the Executive Director at the Steel Yard, where he has been an active community and staff member since 2005. In 2007 he received a Providence Arts and Business Council Encore award for his public art and community organizing through the Steel Yard’s Public Projects department. He has taught welding, fabricating, sculpture and drawing and has collaborated with over 100 other local artists to create functional and decorative public art throughout Southern New England.
