My name is Andrea, Andi for short, and I am striving to become an influential, spiritual, and positively uplifting artist. Took me a couple years of figuring out who I am and who I'm meant to be to realize it... but I am finally coming into my own and embracing who I am.
My mother, Laurie Hamilton, better known as Primal Painter in the artistic and spiritual community, raised me as a single artist for my entire life. She is the most amazing, glowing, positively influencing individual that I have ever met. Her art is incredible.. almost as incredible as the message she sends with each piece. It is an honor to know her and even more inspiring to be raised by such a stunning human being.
Growing up, I never fully understood some of the things she was trying to do. I would think it was silly when she meditated or talked about Chakra Balance or spiritual healing. Teenagers can be pretty narrow minded sometimes! Since I have lived on my own and experienced life in full force, my opinions have definitely started to alter. I have started to realize how sensitive I am to people's moods and characteristics, the energy in the room, and how much of an impact I can make on someone's day just by smiling and saying something nice to them. Those are just a few examples of the things in this world that have cleared my foggy perspective on things. Music, family, and friends have been a huge part of that as well! I turned 25 almost two weeks ago and feel like I have finally started to embrace the person I'm supposed to be! It's actually pretty exciting for me!
During the fall of last year, I decided to start helping my mom with her business. She has been doing it all on her own since before I can remember and now that she is starting to get quite a bit of recognition, its getting harder for her to do it by herself. I have always been an artistic person as well... but never utilized it in everyday life. Its exhilarating!
My mother, Laurie (Primal Painter), makes Reiki Infused Energy Art Prints and Chakra Jewelry inspired by her original art prints. They are the most vibrant, eye catching, breathtaking pieces of art I have ever laid my eyes on. You can find her on etsy or facebook! I feel like her art could really make a difference in the world. She infuses each item that she sells with Reiki Healing Energy specifically to the person who purchased it. It's pretty increcible. Never seen anything like it before.
As a way for me to start helping her, I started learning how to make the necklaces and earrings with her (which is way harder than I thought it would be!) and I am going to set up a booth at art shows and music festivals all over the place this year to help get her name out there. I have also started taking over the internet, computer aspect of things... She really hates that part! This summer is going to be a crazy one but I think its going to be the best year yet!
I wrote this article to express to everyone how amazing you all are and how much you are capable of. If you feel happy doing something, especially when that something makes people around you feel uplifted and happy, do it. There is no reason not to. Make the most of your life and who you are! Its what you were put here to do!
This image symbolizes the ability to rise above all challenges and obstacles that arise in our lives. It's about courage and faith, the will to survive and thrive, and the ability to shine our Light for ourselves and others no matter the circumstances. Phoenix Rising represents all of the chakras and is intended to open, align and activate the entire chakra system. She created this one on the day of the Boston Marathon bombing.
