The Healing Nature of Occupation
Link to Full Text
Moses Kai Hamilton was born in a small beach house on the north shore of Kauai, Hawaii. When a tragic accident left Hamilton paralyzed, he turned to mouth painting for comfort. Participation in a meaningful occupation helped Hamilton find his path in life. Over time, he developed his own techniques, use of color, and a signature impressionist style. Painting nurtured Hamilton’s soul. As a result, his art grew better and sweeter.
