Michelle Rowe, Artist

Traditional Newfoundland Artist


If its Newfoundland and Labrador your looking for.....Michelle is the artist you are looking for.


She takes pride in bringing to life on canvas her beloved surroundings....somehow softening its harsh rugged reality....gently depicting its raw harsh landscapes with color.


She is the patient teacher who brings Newfoundland Culture to the youth with enthusiasm.
