Founder, Students on Ice and Canada C3 Expedition Leader
" 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."

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.

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

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.

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

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.
Il est incontestable que Dominique maîtrise la technique , mais plus que cela, la liberté qui émane de ses toiles est la qualité que je mettrais en avant de son art et qui reflète pour ce que je la connais sa personnalité.
J’aime l’originalité de ses scénographies tout en gardant toujours l’esthétique de ses sujets. Gage du respect qu’elle porte au monde qu’elle peint.

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 d’authenticité hors du commun!
