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
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.
