SJ Howarth

Author of ‘Painting For Lemonade

SJ Howarth was born in the north of England in the 1970s.

Since then life has taken him here and there – downward, landward, upward, seaward and back again.

After many years of excess and abandon, he can now be found seeking a simpler inspiration outdoors, enjoying woodland, water, sunsets and night-time.

Indoors he enjoys good fresh coffee, the company of his irascible, aggressively affectionate rescue cat and a wry sense of humour, usually with reggae-dub-ska-punk soundtrack.

Painting For Lemonade

the newly turned earth
of dawn
the boat lake is black
with sleeping water

dream borne hulls
huddle at the shaded heart
of the lake”

(extract from ‘Kin’)
