Lenea Howe

Contemporary Folk Artist

Memoriesand MakeBelieve

This award-winning folk artist moved to Cape Coral from Ann Arbor, Michigan. After she earned dual degrees in painting and sculpture from the University of Michigan, her artwork naturally led her to art dolls where she was able to utilize her skills in both two- and three-dimensional work.

In addition to several Best of Show awards, Lenea was recently published in "Art Doll Quarterly." She co-chaired the University of MIchigan School of Art Alumni Show from 2007 to 2011.

​Lenea uses bright blasts of color, subtle humor, and unexpected whimsy. Her work is loud, flamboyant, and edgy-in a class of its own.

​Her ideas evolve from dreams and memories, from her small-town roots and her Swedish heritage.
