Colleen K. Howe was born in American Fork, Utah in 1953. Shortly thereafter, she moved to southwestern Montana with her family. Growing up on a 1,000 acre cattle ranch in the middle of the Big Hole Valley definitely encouraged her to love the open landscape. She had many adventures on her paint horse, Pinky, exploring the meadows and river places near her home. She attended a two-room school house in Jackson, Montana, and since her teacher was responsible for four grades, she took advantage of free time by drawing on a seemingly unending supply of manilla paper found on shelves in the back of the room.
Colleen continued her interest in landscape by studying painting at Brigham Young University and the University of Utah.
