Brief biography

Howard Raybould was born in London, in 1946. He attended Hammersmith College of Art, London, (1965-1966) and Ravensbourne College of Art and Design, London, (1966-1969) where he completed a degree in Fine Art and Sculpture. Howard’s sculptural style has been influenced by the diverse background of training he received in areas such as furniture making, carving, gilding and polishing, as well as the french landscape in which he currently lives and works.

Raybould’s work is held in public and private collections that include the Shipley Art Gallery, Gateshead, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the British Council. He has exhibited internationally at fairs including Palm Beach Contemporary Art Fair, Florida, USA and at galleries such as the Medici Gallery, London and the Jill George Gallery, London.

Raybould received an award from The Churchill Memorial Trust in 1978 to travel to Japan to study styles and techniques. In 1985 he received a Crafts Council grant in support of his practice and a ‘Project Award’ from the Gulbenkian Foundation in 1988. Raybould currently lives and works in Cazilhac, France.
