About the Artist
A ninth generation Mainer, Jeffrey Howatt teaches math in the same school district that he attended and where his grandmother taught. Like his grandmother before him he was graduated from University of Maine in Farmington. Howatt has paddled most all of Central and Northern Maine rivers and hiked most of her mountains including the Maine section of the Appalachian Trail from inside the New Hampshire border to Mt. Katahdin. He is married to Maria (another Maine Guide). They have four children, one still at home in Farmington where they garden to eat and put food by for the winter. Howatt hunts and fishes for their table. All four children still join their parents on canoeing and hiking adventures.
