Welcome to Michelle Barkway Art + Illustration!  I'm so happy that you're here.

I've also carefully curated a shop to reflect the beauty and inspiration of the West Coast. Visit Shop Curate to view a selection of original paintings, ceramics, jewellery + home decor by Vancouver Island artists + makers. Tall trees and cold seas really get those creative juices flowing!

Shop Curate

Surrounded by ocean, rainforest + mountains, I count myself as pretty darned lucky to call Vancouver Island home.  It's those natural elements that infuse themselves into every piece I bring into Curate.
