radically unknown - embracing a level of uncertainty and unpredictability in order to achieve growth and personal transformation.

Lori Hammer is an accomplished artist and entrepreneur, known for her unique creative vision and ability to fuse marketing and graphic design together seamlessly. Her journey as an artist began at Purdue University, where she was pursuing a degree in Business. Although Lori had only taken one art class at Purdue, her instructor saw her potential and encouraged her to continue her studies in art school.

Taking her instructor's advice, Lori went on to attend Columbia College Chicago, where she received her degree in Marketing with a minor in Graphic Design. After completing her education, Lori founded her own marketing firm in 2005, creating digital designs for a variety of industries. While she was successful in her career, Lori had stopped painting during those years because her computer was her main medium of design.

However, after almost two decades of not painting, Lori made a decision in 2021 to pick up her brushes again and started her first series of the collective energies. Her artistic style blends a mix of techniques, including vibrant color palettes, bold brush strokes, and intuitive mark-making, and is often inspired by her personal experiences and observations of the world around her.

Lori's work has been described as powerful, evocative, and deeply personal, with each piece conveying a message that is both poignant and inspiring.

Despite the demands of running her own company, Lori continues to pursue her passion for painting, demonstrating the power of art as a means of self-expression and a source of healing. She remains an inspiration to aspiring artists and entrepreneurs alike, proving that with dedication and hard work, it's possible to achieve success in both business and the arts.

collective energies collection

My art explores the power of collective energies and the ways in which they shape our world. Using a vibrant palette of colors and a variety of mediums, I seek to capture the complex interplay between individuals and their environments, and the energy that arises when they come together in pursuit of a common goal. Through my work, I aim to create a sense of connection between viewers and the collective energies that animate our lives, inspiring them to tap into their own inner reserves of strength and creativity. My art celebrates the beauty and power of the collective, and invites viewers to explore the limitless potential of what can be achieved when we work together.
