Biography

 

Jeremy Howe was born and raised in New Mexico. He comes from a family of award-winning artists (Grandfather, Bill Wiggins – Governor’s Award 2010 and Mother, Elaine Howe – Governor’s Award 2012) and was always nurtured in his own sense of expression. Since 2000, Jeremy Howe’s medium of choice has been fireworks. In this high-energy genre, Jeremy has pioneered and fine-tuned various techniques in the art of capturing colored smoke and oxidation trails onto paper. He is a self-taught artist, holding a degree in geology from New Mexico Tech. Past museum exhibits include Ft. Collins Museum of Fine Art, and Roswell Museum and Art Center. Jeremy currently educates the public about space science through the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium.
