Dominique, a graduate of the Burrowes School of Art in 2007 was awarded Best Graduating Student and Best Painting Student and her work has continued to be recognized. She won awards in the biennial National Drawing Competitions of 2008 and 2010 at Castellani House.

The release said her images can be dreamlike, tranquil or shocking in their scenarios, but executed with drawing skills that make each of her worlds wholly believable.

Admission to the exhibition is free and gallery opening times are Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday 2 to 6 pm. The gallery is closed on Sundays and holidays.
