“This simple passage of scripture defines much of what it means to be Christian,” says artist Howard Lyon. “To follow Christ means a life of compassion and service. It does not mean that there will not be heartache or trials. It does not mean we will not stumble and fall. Hardship is part of life, but Christ, through His atonement will be there to clear the path back to the light, bringing hope to an imperfect people trying to be better.”
Howard Lyon was born and raised, the youngest of five children, in Mesa, Arizona. Howard had very supportive parents who, even when he was very young, made sure he had the materials and education to hone his talents. While attending high school Howard met his wife, Shari Lunt. They married after they graduated, went to college, and they now have three children and reside in Mesa.
He has studied art in Italy, France, and most recently at the Grand Central Academy in New York. He has combined these experiences to expand his subject matter to create inspirational pieces in the style of some of his favorite old masters: William Bouguereau, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, and John William Waterhouse.
Howard began his career studying illustration working with artists such as Robert Barrett, Don Seegmiller, James Christensen and Greg Olsen. Over the past 15 years he has worked in the video game industry as an Art Director, concept artist and freelance illustrator.
