Born in Ottawa, Dominique Hurley is an intuitive visionary artist who lived on 3 continents and in 5 provinces before calling St. John’s home in 2011. Grounded in her love of beauty and the beauty of love, Dominique inspires through energy infused paintings, photography, video productions, intuitive exercises, guided meditations, presentations, interactive workshops, and writings.
Dominique has been a part of many solo /group exhibitions since 1988. She has a Certificate of Art & Design (SK), two Certificates of Professional Photography (BC, NY), and a Masters of Education (AB). In 2013/14, she studied at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art (AT) and was artist in residence at the Academy of Art, Creativity & Consciousness (IT). She was godmother of the 2018 Atlantic Visual Arts Festival (NB) and winner of a 2019 NL Arts & Letters Award for her painting “Every Dot a Prayer”, the first of 11 in her most recent “Re-Connecting Collection”.
My artwork is as much about the creative process as it is about the results reflecting the dance of Spirit within the many layers of Nature and the Self. Intuitive visionary painting and photography have nourished my transformational journey since the late 80s. Art has offered me a portal to visual and energetic meditative experiences that I’m honoured to share with viewers. Self-taught for the first 2 decades, my art became enriched by my international travels and studies in photography, visionary & intuitive art, wellness, and energy work. Now, I use my art in ways that also support others on their path of personal & spiritual growth.
Videography is a recent passion thanks to the acquisition of my iPhone XI pro. I’d previously explored iMovie to create videos of my recorded meditations for YouTube. Starting in April, during COVID-19, I dove much deeper into videography with longer productions inspired by my much-needed time outdoors and later staycations thanks to the sponsorship of a couple of Airbnb managers. As I fulfilled my need to reconnect to my True Self and to nature, I felt compelled to share the benefits with others.
