Jim Howle is one of the most versatile clowns performing today. In addition to his performing skills, which are finely honed, he is also a famous artist and expert on clown make up.

Jim is a native of Darlington, South Carolina, where his mother was an artist, and Jim was pulled into clowning through art. While attending the Ringling School of Art, he learned of the creation of the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Clown College. He applied, was accepted, and was graduated from the original class in 1968.

He then toured with the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey for seven years as a clown.

Howle became interested in art as a youngster. By the age of 12, he said he had decided to become a professional artist. After high school graduation, Howle left Darlington County for Sarasota, Fla., where he studied at the Ringling Art School pursuing a degree in fine arts. It was through his art he connected with the Ringling’s Clown College and became a member of the first graduating class in 1968.

Howle is recognized as one of the foremost painters of circus life, especially of clowns. From his days as a student at the Ringling School of Art, Howle became fascinated by people in the circus and took to the lifestyle himself, becoming a clown for many years with the Greatest Show on Earth and the official Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey’s Circus artist.

Several of Howle’s oil paintings of famous clowns – Emmett Kelly, Lou Jacobs and Bobby Kay – have been cataloged by the Smithsonian Institute’s National Portrait Gallery. He had a one-man international art show that traveled from Scotland and England to Leningrad and Moscow. His work has been shown at the P.T. Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, Conn., and many other places in the United States. In 1994, Howle was inducted into the International Clown Hall of Fame.
