Born in Wilmington, Howell received his early artistic training from an eccentric British transplant, Elisabeth Chant. He went on to seek further training during his travels to artist colonies in the Northeast, New York, and Paris. Through these travels, Howell learned to paint what he knew and loved - life along the Cape Fear.
