In 1947 he was awarded a British Council scholarship and then studied at Camberwell School of Art in London. He received several awards, including the Institute of Jamaica's Silver and Gold Musgrave Medals in 1958 and 1974, respectively. Huie was presented with an international award for painting at the Spanish Bi-Annual exhibition in Havana, Cuba in 1959. In 1962, he received the Jamaica Government award for the best painting in the annual National Exhibition. He has also been the recipient of the Badge of Honour for his contribution to art (1968). Also in that year he participated in a group exhibition presented by the Caribbean Committee for Cultural Advancement in Canada. (Adapted from the National Library of Jamaica)
