Visual Contemporary Artist - Brushwork, Palette Knife and Finger Paintings
Lori is a creative visionary producing a broad spectrum of subjects in color-drenched contemporary impressionistic artworks. Taking inspiration from her many friends in the art community, she boldly creates pieces that engage every capacity of the human experience.
Lori Rowe explores the endless variations of color and technique to produce vibrant elements in her creative work. A self-taught artist, Rowe began painting as a means to remember beloved pets, but soon discovered a passion to create art that goes well beyond her love for animals.
A closer look at her body of work hints at the influences of admired contemporary artists such as San Diego artist Erin Hanson, well known for her open impressionism landscapes, as well as Brooklyn New York artist Iris Scott, famous for finger paintings. You may also see old world master influence such as Claude Monet, the founder of French Impressionist painting and Vincent van Gogh, the Dutch Post-Impressionist painter.
In her quest for artistic expression, Rowe experiments with various methods of applying paint to canvas, such as brushwork, palette knife, and finger painting. Using bold strokes with vivid colors, Rowe produces the incredible works displayed in her gallery.
Rowe, as a passionate animal lover, spends much of her time working with worthy animal rescue organizations. This resulted in becoming a featured artist in various animal charity publications.
In 2018, Lori founded The Rowe Gallery as a prominent Borrego Springs art gallery which quickly became one of the popular must-see stops for art connoisseurs in Southern California.
As life would have it, Lori's husband's employment circumstances prompted relocation. Keeping her commitment to do life together with her husband of 27 years. The Rowe's packed up the entire household and Gallery and moved to Vero Beach, FL in 2020.
