Dominique Normand, artist from the Laurentians has been producing contemporary art since 2001, which celebrates Canada’s native culture.

Born in a family of artists in Lac Beauport, Quebec, Dominique Normand worked for seventeen year in postproduction as a graphic designer and animator. She created movie openings, ads, packaging for broadcast, and special FX.

From this period comes her interest in native culture and the desire to integrate it in her art. From 2001, she embraces life as a nomad, a painter. More and more she travels north of the 45th parallel and captures, in painting and in film, her unique vision of the people, the landscapes and traditional activities she is witnessing. Her talent as a communicator allows her to share her passion and vision in a powerful way. Her strong visceral bond with the Native Culture has led her to inquire and research through her roots on her father’s side. The region of Montmagny was a frequent passage for the Nomadic Malicet  Natives of Eastern Quebec and New Brunswick. In 2012, she finds out she is Metis of Micmac, Algonquin and Maliseet descent.

Her paintings are fragments of her story and the worlds she visits in a passionate manner.

Travel after travel, her discoveries and experiences lead to her transformation as a painter of the Spirit of the North. In Northern Quebec, Dominique is immersed in Cree traditions, everyday activities such as tool making, medicinal plants, bush living, tanning, crafts, cooking, sewing. She celebrates the beauty of Canadian Wilderness.
