Greetings! I'm Cymbeline Lorcan, owner and creatrix of Unquiet Dreams. Thank you for allowing me to share part of my journey with you.

I have been painting and drawing for four decades, using one medium or another. It began in earnest the summer my grandmother enrolled me, a small child, in oil painting classes at her church. I fell in love with the oil pigments right there...the smell (art has a fragrance, have you noticed?)...the way I could change something up even the next day, blending with my fingers, touching up with brushes. Art has been a constant in my life. Not the only one, but one of my more faithful companions.

My jewelry journey began a year ago when one of my clients was preparing to downsize and move across state. A long-time artisan of handcrafted jewelry, she patiently shared her skills with me, having me repeat techniques over and over until I got them right. When she was pleased with my results, she gave me tools and boxes of the most gorgeous semi-precious stone and beads. Her advice, which I have taken to heart, was "Don't overthink the design. Enjoy the process."

My day job is as a self-employed house-cleaner. I enjoy my work and love my clients. It pleases me to leave something more aesthetically pleasing than I found it. I am a mom of four, my youngest now a teenager. She and I are domestic violence survivors, and art has helped us both. Being of a younger generation, she enjoys creating digital art, whereas I am old-school. I don't accept commissions. Art is my therapy, and I don't tailor that for anyone but myself. Everything has been created with realness, rawness, magick, and a little madness. 

Please check the tiers to see exactly what is included at each level. Your "patreonage" allows me to buy quality supplies so I may create gallery-quality art. Like linens and wallpaper, you get what you pay for when it comes to art supplies. Your support and belief in my art therapy means a lot, and I am grateful for you reading my words. 

Pax,
Cymbeline
