Hello. I’m Lori-Lyn.


I am an artist and a writer.

I create intuitive prayer paintings.

I write nonfiction and fiction, almost always about love when it comes right down to it.

I create ebooks and workshops and retreats to help guide you through creative expression and soul care, so you can be who you were born to be.


Here are some ways we can work together:

About Me

I have a BA in studio art and an MFA in fiction writing.

I’ve studied theology in the summer program at Christ Church, Oxford, and I’m in my third year of EFM (a four-year learning certificate program in theological study.)

I am attuned to Reiki III.

You can find my education and work history here.

I live with a man who is a photographer, musician, and restorer of old homes.

We met in high school in the late eighties and we’ve been partnered since 2001, when I moved back to Kentucky after ten years in New York City.


We are companions to two extremely domesticated pugs and one semi-wild cat.

They are pretty much the bosses around here.

We have three nieces to whom we are deeply devoted.


We adore the West Coast, and not-so-secretly wish for an opportunity to live in California part-time.


I’ve been following Bright Line Eating since September 2018, which means I can no longer say in my bio that chocolate cake and champagne is my favorite meal, as I don’t consume either of those things.

I do, however, still love coffee. A good almond milk latte is my love language.

An almond milk latte at an outdoor cafe in California? Absolute bliss.

Here’s a brief list of things I enjoy: liturgical worship, walking in the woods, collecting crystals and arranging them around my house, the tarot, creating Spotify playlists, watching movies from the 60s and 70s, salt bathing, sunset in Laurel Canyon, thrift shopping, richly scented candles, collecting hippie cookbooks, when my dogs wag their tails in their sleep.

It’s my wish to live my life with an open mind and an open heart, guided by intuition and curiosity, and trusting in my path as it appears before me.

This is also how I seek to work - to paint and write and share space with others - in the spirit of healing and unconditional love.

I hope that when you meet me, you leave feeling free, fully seen and supported, as if we just shared a cup of coffee on the front porch, in our leopard print pajamas and kimono robes, warm sun on our skin, cool breeze in our hair.

I’d love to work with you and I’d love to hear from you.

Please do check out Lori-Lyn Hurley. I have worked with her on a few different occasions, and she is just wonderful. There’s this place that exists somewhere between (and also beyond) the mundane and the magical, the mainstream and the mystical—and that’s where Lori-Lyn can be found. She’s an artist, she does energy work, she is a marvelous listener who provides clarity for the person doing the talking (I know all about this last part, for she recently worked with me on some life purpose/life path concerns I was having.) Lori-Lyn has many talents and a whole lot of wisdom, and she shares them generously, without judgment.

This custom painting by Lori-Lyn is actually *absolute* magic. Beneath this gorgeousness she wrote my intentions/prayers/wishes. She painted on top of them from her heart and intuitive spirit, then she hugged it in to a handmade frame. I’ve been blown away by what I feel this piece has manifested in my life! I see it first thing waking in the door and it feels like a constant high vibration in deep support and cheer for me. To me it works a lot like Feng Shui. It works a lot like the power of intentions.

From the moment I knew my prayer painting was on its way to me, I was eagerly awaiting its arrival! Opening up the package when it arrived was better than Christmas morning. And then seeing her face for the first time, the woman in my painting; well, it felt like I was seeing a part of my soul I hadn’t yet met. Something deep within, that I didn’t know, I didn’t know was there. She’s been with me for a little over a week now and every day, I feel she reveals a new secret to me and holds space for the woman I desire to be and become. The prayer that I sent to Lori-Lyn for my painting was in short, ‘Fulfillment’. And what I got was just that and more. She is a vision for my future. A calling, to my greatest possible path. A blessing. I am in love with Lori-Lyn and her personalized prayer paintings!

Our conversation has been transformative for me. It has helped me emerge from a very dark time, personally and creatively. These past few weeks I have been swept away by waves of creative insight and work in the studio. I have felt compelled to be in the studio, madly working from one idea to another, and becoming quite drunk on the ‘nectar from many different flowers’. In fact, my next task is to integrate all of this energy into a life that includes the whole of me-daily life, mundane chores, enjoying free time, pets, life. Balance, rhythm, ritual-a creative whole.

Lori-Lyn is someone made of the most beautiful, loving, gentle and unique kind of magic.
As an intuitive she is extremely clear and insightful, yet what I receive from her goes so far beyond just intuitive guidance. Meeting her in the loving space she holds is like entering a shower of love and acceptance. Sounds corny, but is true to every word.
I leave each call with her feeling cleansed, strengthened and revived, clear about my path and in deep connection with both my heart and my guidance.
The support she provides has stayed with me for months, even years after our initial sessions.
In one word, she is incredible.
I feel so very blessed to have found her on my path.

My session with Lori-Lyn was deeply reassuring and inspiring – a warm homecoming for my spirit! At the same time, our conversation was also quite practical and helpful, and I came away with some concrete practices and ideas for moving forwards. I loved it that while Lori-Lyn very skillfully weaved her own spot-on intuition and intelligence into the conversation, she also invited me to trust my intuition and spiritual power. She is wonderfully kind, easy to talk to, respectful, and truly gifted. I treasure our conversation and look forwards to the next one. I can’t recommend her work highly enough!

It’s been two weeks since you were here and each day I thought about writing to you and thanking you again for the lovely program you brought to St Paul. I’ve heard so many wonderful comments from those who attended. They loved the art activity as well as the slideshow and lecture/discussion…I was really pleased by how many shared questions, comments and talked about their art that day.
