Howard Robinson was born in England in 1959. After 5 years of formal training in graphic design and illustration, he earned a BA with honours in 1980 from Brighton Polytechnic. Howard has worked as an illustrator for over 20 years and has won many awards for his artwork. He excels in all forms of wildlife, although his main interest is in birds. Although realistic in nature, his style and interpretation of his subjects lend itself to commercial applications and as such his images are published worldwide. His colourful and endearing images are regularly used on the background sets of TV shows and even Hollywood movies.
