My Story

My name is Laurie, better known as Primal Painter, creator of Lightworker Visionary Art for the Soul, and I'm all about the energy. My diabolical plot is to spread light and love into the world by channeling healing energy and intentions into my art, and my sincere hope is that it will have an uplifting and positive effect on the body, mind, and soul of the world. I believe that when someone wears one of my necklaces or sees my art decorating their house or office, the positive energy not only effects everyone and everything in the vicinity but also radiates out from them to others as a network of light.

My creative process is intuitive and comes from a place that feels very primal, something "Beyond", the Source of All Things. When I turn off my brain and allow energy to flow through me as I digitally manipulate my own photography, it's as if I merge with the image and go inside of it, and like magic, it turns into something ethereal and meaningful, something spiritual with a healing purpose. I never know what's going to emerge, but people seem to feel the healing vibes and energy emanating from my work, and that's why I do it.

If you have a few minutes, check out one of the collections such as Visionary Art Prints. Look at the images and see how they make you feel. If you feel goosebumps or a noticeably higher energy in any way, then this type of artwork might be just what you need. If you're here searching for healing or answers, you may be finding just the right thing at just the right time; the Universe works in mysterious ways!

I have an advanced Reiki degree, but I'm not a Reiki master, and I practice a variety of energy work, infusing those qualities into my visionary art with a focus on Reiki healing energy and Source Light. Heartfelt, pure intention is a powerful manifestation and healing tool, and I use it with everything.

I live on a mountaintop in rural Arkansas surrounded by pets, wildlife, trees, and flowers, I crave the sun, and if I'm not being creative and original, I get all tied up in knots. Then I spend some time wallowing around and feeling sorry for myself until I realize that I haven't made any art for a while, duh. Ever since I was very young, I've been able to feel vibrations in my hands when I hold things, and I've always been intuitive and empathic. It's easy for me to feel what someone else is feeling which can contribute to my tendency to be a hermit, but I feel best when I'm in the flow where my imagination ventures into the outer realms. Speaking of outer realms, I love fantasy books and movies; anything with magic and mystical realms flips my switch. If I had to describe myself, I'd say I was an artsy, spiritual farm girl with hippie tendencies, but the only label I truly embrace is free spirit.

If you'd like to learn more about my process and how I got here, I wrote an illustrated memoir of how my art came into Being and how I stumbled across Reiki called The Attack: From Shattered to Whole. It's a true story of survival, healing, transformation, and growth through challenges, art, and energy work. It has some bad language and even worse humor, and some parts make me look like a self-absorbed airhead, but it's authentic, and that's the most important thing. I can be a loose cannon at times, and I'm no angel, or if I am, I'm more like scruffy John Travolta in that movie "Michael". My wings might be tattered, and my hair is frizzy, but I can still fly!

May the right person find my artwork at just the right time and experience positive benefits in every way.

With Love and Light for you and yours,
