My name is Lori-Lyn Hurley.
I'm a writer and a painter.
I want to help create a world where every woman honors her voice, makes the art of her soul, and speaks the truth of her heart;
where the peaceful lead the way, love is our compass, kindness is our language, and mercy is our guide.
I believe this world exists. When we create, we dream with God. We dream our world into being.
I believe art heals because it reminds us of our wholeness and our sacred nature and our inherent beauty.
I believe I was created to create, and so were you.
I’m an Episcopalian, an INFP, and an Enneagram 4. My sun and moon are in Aquarius with Capricorn rising.
I write about things like living a creative life, the sacred feminine, self-care, love, intuition, spirituality, and reclaiming voice.
I believe in the restorative properties of heavy ceramic mugs, sticky incense, long hikes, chocolate cake, and leopard print pajamas.
I have a BA in studio art, an MFA in fiction writing, and I study theology.
I'm a native Kentuckian who spent a decade in New York City.
Now, I make my home in Kentucky and share my life with my partner Tracy who is a musician, photographer, and restorer of old houses.
We live with our two pugs, Woody and Rocky.
I also offer 1:1 sessions.
If you're wondering why I call myself a prayer painter, I wrote an explanation here.
