About

Dominique conveys in image the omnipresent forces

which shape human life in the heart of the Nordic territory. Since 2008, she

has had special ties with the Cree people of James Bay. The precious sum of these   encounters and the lessons they reveal constitute a source of

inspiration with rich, limitless creative potential. Drawing from her own

experience within the communities and her awareness of life, she

evokes in painting and documentaries essential bonds

that link all our relationships. A sometimes mysterious

universe that highlights the fascination she feels for the

nature that inhabits and bewitches her.

I see the stars above and far away
I see the sun and the moon
I see the owl and the solitary loon
I dance to the echoes of the day

Proudly hanging in our modest abode is a pleasantly provocative fabric of her mind translated onto canvas. Thank you with all our sincerity.

John and Susan Mclean - Mont Tremblant

Dominique Normand’s has the unique ability to capture the very essence of life in her paintings. For me I sense and see nature, our precious environment, joy and harmony and most of all a spirituality that is so impactful. I highly recommend her work.

Charles Coffey - O.C. Indigenous Awareness Canada

My wife Irina and I were very moved by both paintings we acquired and were thrilled to hang them in our apartment when we returned home. We’ll treasure them for years to come.

Bob Epstein   Executive Producer, NBC Universal

Your work is beautiful – I especially like ‘Life in the Bush’ and ‘North of 45’ because I love the ceremony of food preparation. I always remember you to be a beautiful, thoughtful and caring person and it shows in your art

David Tyreman,  World Famous Branding

We treasure your painting displayed at the National Research Centre in Winnipeg to commemorate the work of artists such as you who are reflecting so powerfully on our journey of healing and reconciliation through the beauty of artistic expression.

Lori Ransom - Senior Advisor Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

When I look at the vibrant works of Dominique Normand, I delight in the colour and style, but most importantly, I feel something.

Fred Penner - C.M.  O.M.

Femme de coeur et de vision, Dominique sait nous émouvoir à travers ses représentations visuelles. Peintre d’exception, ses images nous transportent dans un monde onirique ou se croisent diverses représentations de la nature et de ses habitants. Elle sait dépeindre ses sujets de manières sensibles avec une touche

Annie-Claude Roberge - Sekoya - réalisatrice, productrice, photographe

I am captivated by the motion, energy and possibilities in your work. The painting Arabesque has whisked me into a wonderful new world.

James Raffan - Speaker, Author, Adventurer

I am particularly excited and interested in your work « Goingin » and I believe it would be an important addition to our program. Your use of color, abstractness, and design are both eye-catching and visually appealing.

Samantha Frost - Associate Curator New York Arts Magazine

J’ai découvert le travail de Dominique Normand il y a plus d’une dizaine d’année. Dominique peignait à cette époque sur le thème du cheval et en plus d’aimer profondément cet animal, j’ai été impressionnée par la force qui émanait de ses toiles. Force du mouvement, force des traits soulignée par une utilisation de magnifiques couleurs dont la palette est devenue à mes yeux, au fil des ans de plus en plus belle.

Anne Caron, Centre Médico-Chirurgical Nyon SA

I have bought landscpes from Dominique because I apprciate her respnse to the Laurentians. Living abroad for many years, her work truely brings me back to my roots. Its a very emotianal response, but her work is wonderful.

Geta Etorolopiaq - Inuit Carver

I have watched Dominique Normand in her work for over 10 years. I have always been in awe of her mastery of Line, Light and Drama. Her journey of growth and exploration is a beacon of inspiration.

Tom E. Murray - On-board-data-systems, QC

Dominique Normand was such an integral member of our Canada C3 team as we sailed along the Newfoundland and Labrador coast from St John’s to Nain. Her beautiful, vibrant paintings in response to this intense experience evoke poignant memories. Each one perfectly captures the stunning physical environment we sailed through as well as the in-depth cultural conversations and experiences we shared about Canada’s past, present and future. We are proud to have Dominique as one of the featured artists in the Open Channels exhibition in partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts and as a member of our Students on Ice Foundation family
