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.

Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.
— St. Catherine of Siena

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 create personal prayer paintings, write a series of love stories, and host workshops and retreats on-line and in-person.

I also offer 1:1 sessions.

If you're wondering why I call myself a prayer painter, I wrote an explanation here.

You can commission a painting here or shop here or get prints, mugs, pillows and more here.

You can sign-up to receive the Monthly Studio Love Story here.


If you're interested in a retreat or workshop or would like to commission a prayer painting - please drop me a line.

Unless otherwise marked, all paintings are for sale and can be delivered in the Lexington area, or shipped in the U.S.

Please be in touch if you're interested in purchasing a piece.

If a painting speaks to you - I want you to have it!

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

To say it was wonderful is not enough. It tripped open the door to my writer self… and to some threads of things my unconscious has been trying to express but had been so deeply buried. For myself…it has now lead me to pursue writing permanently. Two stories have taken root and I am following through to learn how to get them out on paper.

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!

Lori-Lyn is the gentlest of teachers, allowing you to move through materials at your own pace, in your own way. Her lessons are beautifully written and the audio meditations are magical. What made working with her extra-special for me were Lori-Lyn’s video posts. She exudes vitality and life force and seeing her radiate speaks volumes about the worthiness of the course materials. I highly recommend her courses.

Lori-Lyn is an incredible energy healer. I’ve worked with her many times, for many different reasons.
By the end of our call or email reading I feel clear, confident and closer to God. It’s as if her readings dissolve my perceived blocks and inspire clarity. Being able to work with Lori-Lyn is a privilege.
