JEFFREY WILLIAM HOWE

Jeff’s love affair with the arts began as just that-a love affair. Having worked in the construction industry in his high school years, Jeff went on to start a family before joining the US Army in 1995 as a helicopter mechanic for the 82nd Airborne Division.  While there he began to make furniture for his loving family back home.  His first original art piece was an Artist Pallet Coffee Table made from rock maple and bloodwood.  After serving as a Veteran of Foreign Wars and being awarded a NATO Peacekeeping Medal, Jeff returned home and formed JC Howe Construction in 2001 with a niche in high end custom cabinetry.

It didn’t take long before his clients realized how skilled he was and they began asking for more intricate works than basic cabinetry and construction.  With a passion for utilizing different woods found the world-over he expanded his extensive self-taught carpentry skills into creating several one-of-a-kind furniture pieces that possessed both functionality and exquisite design.

The love affair with art continued while vacationing with his wife for their anniversary in 2010.  A visit to the Elvis Presley Estate led to the evolving artist being commissioned to create one of the most iconic pieces in Palm Springs: a 9″ tall 6″ wide silhouette of the King that was mounted on the chimney of the estate, designed and expertly welded by Jeff.  His piece gained international recognition being broadcasted on California Gold with Huell Howser, French Vogue, and Japanese NBC Television.  This opportunity renewed his passion for the arts, igniting a deeper desire to create more than just functional art.

Jeff currently resides in Laguna Niguel, CA with his loving wife Crystal and their two sons where he carries on the Yankee carpenter tradition of recycling all materials, taking what was once old and creating surrealistic art from it.

 

Donny The Defender

I ran into a Don Quixote sculpture in Palm Springs when I was about 8 years old and thought that was the coolest thing I've ever seen. I ran into him a few years ago while on vacation. It triggered me to start building my vision. When I was in junior high school I had the music teacher tell me to shut up and just sit in the corner and not sing because I was so tone deaf. I understand im not a pleasant singer, but it sure squelches an artist, we are sensitive as artists. I'm just one story, I've heard a number of them from folks like me.  I'm just a big fan of keeping the Arts in school so kids can find a passion they can carry for life, into all aspects of life.

This all leads to the sculpture I built with ideas of raising awareness and funds to keep Arts alive in schools.


Donnie the defender has a quixotic mission to save the Arts in schools. Is 100 recycled materials he's over eight feet tall (9'6"at the paint brush tip) roughly 500 pounds. Donny is an active defender to help prevent the loss of Arts in schools, children need to learn of Arts and have an opportunity to find their creative side. Donnie represents the three classic arts, music painting and sculpture. His goal is to raise awareness for arts in school. Donny has eyes of glass so his vision will always be clear. He has no ears so we can hear neither praise nor condemnation which would affect the outcome of his mission, he has no mouth because words are weak. My goal for Donnie would be to help to raise money for arts and awareness to keep children with the chance to find their passion.
