Artist Biography

Otis Huband was born in Fredericksburg, Virginia in 1933. He began studying art at Virginia Commonwealth University (formerly the Richmond Professional Institute of the College of William & Mary) after a tour of duty in the Navy. He also attended the California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland. He completed his BFA and MFA at Virginia Commonwealth University and in 1963 travelled to Italy to study at the Academia de Bella Arta in Perugia. Huband returned from Europe in 1964 and moved to Houston the following year. Upon his arrival, he bypassed the local gallery scene by choice, opting instead to concentrate most of his time in his studio. In addition, he also worked as an art instructor at the University of Houston, the Museum School of Fine Arts, Rice University, and the Art League of Houston.
